Boilermaker And Townsquare Media Supporting Flood Relief Efforts At The Boilermaker Post Race Party
Participants in this year's Boilermaker Post Race Party will have another opportunity to help support victims of the Mohawk Valley Flooding.
Townsquare Media's Utica stations WIBX/950AM, WODZ/Oldiez 96.1FM, WLZW/Lite 98.7FM, and WFRG/Big Frog 104.3FM will be joined by Tookie the Toucan and Jeremiah B. Frog as they wander through the crowd with collection buckets.
All of the money gathered will go directly to agencies supporting local flood relief.
Boilermaker Road Race President Tim Reed said, "When Super Storm Sandy hit downstate we quickly rushed needed supplies their way. Now the tragedy is literally in our backyard; how can we do anything less? When Townsquare approached us with the idea it felt like the right thing to do."
Karen Carey, Vice President and General Manager of Townsquare Media Utica, says, "At a time of great celebration we hope the runners remember the hardships our neighbors are experiencing."
