“Each bike will go to a child in need this Christmas”
Birmingham, AL [November 18, 2016] – SummitMedia,LLC’s Louisville’s Q103.1 is in the middle of their first annual charity drive, “Bikes or Bust” with the goal of collecting bikes for Toys for Tots. Dingo, from Q103.1’s morning show “The Redneck Revolution” plans to live on a scissor lift for 103 hours to raise awareness for the cause.
Jess Tyler of “The Redneck Revolution” spoke with CMA Entertainer of the year Garth Brooks this morning about his upcoming show in Cincinnati. She told him about the charity drive and he vowed to donate 10 bikes for every hour that Dingo plans to live on the lift. With that promise, Garth will donate 1,030 bikes to Bikes or Bust and Toys for Tots, bringing the total number of bikes collected so far to 1,581.
Q103.1 is challenging the local community to donate a bike by saying, “Garth Brooks stepped up, how about you?” Each bike collected will go to a child in need this Christmas through Toys for Tots. When asked about the bike donations, Louisville Toys for Tots Coordinator Cletis Evans said, “In recent years, we struggled with bike donations and the most we ever accumulated was 332 through a 3 week campaign. This far exceeds my imagination and because of the large quantity of bikes being donated; we are going to share these with the coordinators from Fort Knox and Bowling Green. Doing so will ensure that some of the less fortunate children in 19 counties of Kentucky will wake up Christmas morning to a brand new bike because every child deserves a little Christmas.”
Bikes or Bust continues through Monday at which time Dingo will come down to join Jess as they reveal the final count. To donate at the Bikes or Bust event, come down to Buffalo Wild Wings located at 10206 Westport Rd. Bikes or Bust is only possible, because of partners like Sullivan University, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 369, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Toys for Tots.?
