Reverse Radio-a-Thon: One Phone Call Equals A Donation from Culinary Confessions!

A food and restaurant showed called "Culinary Confessions" is celebrating its 15th anniversary this week. They are on KAZG (1440 AM) each day from 11 am to 1 p.m., and this Thursday on October 6, 2011 they will be holding a “Reverse Radio-a-Thon” to celebrate their birthday and raise money for St. Mary’s. For that two-hour time slot, they are asking people to call in, say hello and tell the hosts what food they are most grateful for. In other words, you’re favorite food. That’s it.

This is how easy it is: You call, tell them your name & your favorite food and then they say, “We’re talking to John Dough. He says hello and that she’s most grateful for Pepperoni Pizza.”
Boom. Done. $10 to St. Mary’s.

Last year, the show took 65 calls and raised $650 for United Food Bank. I think we can do better. If we light up the phone lines consistently for two hours, we can sneak in 100 calls and raise $1,000 – 7,000 meals for a few phone calls.

The phone number is (480) 668-EATS. That’s (480) 668-3287. You can start calling right at 11 a.m. If you get a busy signal, wait a few minutes and try again. You can listen to the show on 1440 AM, but don’t forget to turn down your radio if you get through and are put on hold.

ONE phone call will make a difference. Help St. Mary's Food Bank put a stop to hunger.
