Fundraiser To Help Hurricane Irene Victims

WITN (sister station of WJHG) is teaming with Inner Banks Media and the American Red Cross Disaster Services to host a fundraiser to help Hurricane Irene victims in eastern North Carolina.

There are hundreds of people in eastern North Carolina who have lost their homes and thousands with serious damage. There are still well over 100,000 households in eastern North Carolina without power.

Tomorrow WITN is hosting a daylong fundraising event with the proceeds to benefit the eastern North Carolina Red Cross Disaster Services. All of the money raised will stay in eastern North Carolina to assist the victims of Hurricane Irene. You’ll find the press release attached.

WITN and WTIB 103.7, WNBU 94.1, Star 94.3 and Thunder Country 96.3 will kick off the fund-raising event at WITN’s Greenville studio on Arlington Boulevard beginning Wednesday morning. Phone lines will be manned from 8:00am until 6:30pm with contributions taken over-the-phone at 1-855-619-3785 (toll-free) and 252-222-4387 (local).
