107.7 & 92.1 The Bull, Magic 99.5, Cities 92.9, CEFCU, TENTAC ENTERPRISES, MILLER LITE, and WILBER GROUP are gearing up for the 6th annual Seats Soldiers event to support local veterans. We will be “saving seats” for Soldiers to raise money for Hope for the Warriors®, a national nonprofit that helps Central Illinois veterans from all branches of the military, from the enlisted to the deployed. ALL donations will be donated to Hope for the Warriors!
On July 20th at 6:00 am, On-Air talent from each station will take their seats and broadcast from the Corn Crib in Normal for 36 straight hours to help those who have served our country. Over the course of these 36 hours, members of the community will be encouraged to “save seats” and/or make a donation to benefit Hope for the Warriors®. “Saved seats” will be marked with an American Flag, designating that seat saved for a member of our military. Donations will be accepted in person at the Corn Crib or through the Jimmy John’s text line just text SEATS to 77000. Be a part of this amazing event as we support those who have served our country. Special thanks to our sponsors listed above as well as Mclean County Asphalt Co., Tax & Accounting Plus, Ace Hardware, and Four Seasons Health Club! Seats for Soldiers will end at 6 pm on July 21st right before a CornBelters home game. Be a part of this amazing event as we support those who have served our country!
For each $5 donation that is made, the guys will place a flag on a seat, designating that seat “saved for a soldier” during the event this summer. Donations at $30 are eligible for a commemorative tumbler and $50 for the commemorative T-shirt.
