WTAM 1100's Mike Trivisonno Show completed a tremendous weekend for charity with a flurry. Triv held two nights of 'All In' benefit shows for Coats For Kids at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg, this in response to a horrific February fire which gutted Coats For Kids Cleveland Warehouse.
Sold-out shows Friday and Saturday, sponsored by The Figgie Foundation and Window Nation, netted Coats For Kids $150,000 over the two days. A huge thanks goes out to Roger Greene and his staff at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg as well as entertainers Billy Morris and Sunset Strip featuring Heather Summers, Billy Fischer, Charles Geil And His Ghost Band, Adrienne Wolf, Elvis Tribute Artist Frank Worley and comedian Mike Cheselka.
Two companies we also want to recognize for their diligent work on each night of the show include NPI Audio And Visual Solutions and Vincent Lighting.
A special thanks also goes out to you, our audience, for selling out both shows and setting record for our 50-50 raffle. Friday's cash raffle winner walked off with half of the $16,255 raised. Saturday's haul was even larger as that night's winner took home half of the $18,260 raised. We also want to thank raffle sponsors who donated items:
Absolute Roofing: an $11,000 roof
K-Guard which provided a $5,000 gutter system for each night
Maple Heights Hardware which donated a $1,000 Weber Grill for each night
Guaranteed Cleaning which donated a monthly house cleaning for a year with a $3,500 value
D.O. Summers Cleaners which donated a $250 cleaning service for each night
Orlando Bakery which donated a gift basket for each night
Charlie's Auto Repair in Lakewood which donated a $200 gift certificate for each night
Joe Burdick and Burdick Custom Flags. Joe donated a hand-made wooden American flag for each night.
A pair of signed mallets (sticks) from Cleveland Indians drummer John Adams
Thank you to all of our sponsors! Thank you to all of raffle donors and a huge THANK YOU to the best listening audience in the world for coming up big for such a needy cause. Without all of you, we are not successful in these efforts!!!
