(Twinsburg) - Last week's raffle and benefit shows at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg benefiting 'Coats For Kids' raised more than $440,000 dollars for the charitable organization.
WTAM 1100'S Mike Trivisonno and the 'Coats For Kids' crew broadcast live last Monday and Tuesday from the Hilton Garden Inn from 9am to 6pm each day selling tickets for the raffle which will be held Tuesday, September 25th during the Triv Show in the 4 O'clock hour.
We thank Mike D'Amato and Diehl Belza from Nissan of North Olmsted and David Mortach from Mortach Financial for helping underwrite a large portion of our raffle campaign.
Nissan of North Olmsted has supplied a 2018 Nissan Sentra, with sales taxes paid by the dealership, as one of the prizes for the raffle.
Mortach Financial has also donated cash gifts of $25,000, $7,000 and $3,000 as other major prizes for the raffle.
To cap the week, Triv's 'All In Final Show' both Friday and Saturday nights from the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg played out before sell-out crowds each night of 300 people.
We want to thank Matthew Figgie and Rick Solon of the Figgie Foundation for their major philanthropic gift of $100,000 for the benefit shows last weekend.
Matthew was honored by Triv throughout the weekend after passing away suddenly three weeks ago. We are forever grateful for everything Matthew, Rick and the Figgie Foundation have done for the 'Coats For Kids' charitable efforts.
We also want to recognize Harley Magden and Window Nation for their large contribution to the 'All In Final Show' both Friday and Saturday.
We also want to thank Hilton Garden Inn General Manager Roger Greene and his staff for their outstanding work, as well as NPI Audio-Visual Solutions and Vincent Lighting Systems for making the live benefit shows a rousing success!
Without our title sponsors, individual hourly raffle sponsors and the greatest listeners in the world, we do not achieve the heights we did last week and into the weekend! WTAM 1100 and iHeart Media offer you a very heartfelt THANK YOU!
