AM 570 LA Sports, Los Angeles’ Dodgers radio station, announced today the 11th annual Help-A-Hero Radiothon will take place on Wednesday, December 12th from 11am-7pm. The on-air fundraiser will benefit Dream Center LA, a faith-based charitable organization that finds and fills the needs of struggling people in the Los Angeles area.
Suggested donations will start at $49 and listeners can donate by calling 818-524-2930, online, on the phone by texting "Veterans" 707070 or by visiting dreamcenter.org/hero. Dream Center LA will use raised funds to provide local veterans with a home, education and job assistance.
Celebrities including Los Angeles Dodgers Justin Turner and his wife Kourtney, alongside the AM 570 LA Sports team will accept donations through the phone bank. Throughout the radiothon, listeners will have the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences including: throw the first pitch at a Dodgers game, take a ride in the Goodyear blimp, go behind the scenes during FOX Sports Radio’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd, attend a Dodgers batting practice, go on the field before a Chargers or UCLA Bruins game, ride a Zamboni at a Kings game and attend a show at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles.
"This is an opportunity for AM 570 LA Sports to give back to our fellow Americans who have fought for our freedom,” said Don Martin, Senior Vice President of Sports Programming and General Manager for AM 570 LA Sports. “The Help-A-Hero Radiothon is our way of saying thanks for their ultimate sacrifice and we are both excited and proud to work with Dream Center LA.”
“The Dream Center is so excited to partner with AM 570 Sports and iHeartMedia Los Angeles for their 11th annual Help-A-Hero Radiothon,” said Danise Jurado, Executive Director of Development for Dream Center LA. “Over 11,000 of our country’s heroes are living on the streets of Los Angeles without a place to call home.
Many of them are struggling to reacclimate to a civilian lifestyle and battling with emotional trauma; leaving them isolated and homeless. The Dream Center’s Transitional Housing Program for Homeless Veterans is helping our heroes find hope and stability.”
In the past 11 years, AM 570 LA Sports has raised over $1.5 million through Help-A-Hero Radiothon. Along with this, we are rewarding for donating.
