iHeartMedia Will Host Bid for Breast Cancer Online Auction Event
Listeners, collectors and auction enthusiasts can visit Power 99, Q102, Radio 104.5, WDAS 105.3, Mix 106.1 and Smooth Jazz JJZ online to place bids on items such as a signed guitar from Bon Jovi, an autographed ukulele from twenty one pilots, as well as VIP trips to Las Vegas for concerts including Bruno Mars and Maroon 5. Tickets to the October 22 Goo Goo Dolls show are available at Ticketmaster.com, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to AACR.
“We have pulled together all the resources of our six stations to create an auction that has something for everyone to benefit a cause that’s close to our hearts,” said Brian Check, Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Philadelphia. “AACR is known nationally and internationally for bringing together the greatest minds in cancer research, serving as a catalyst to propel cancer research and treatment forward to help patients worldwide. As a go-to resource in cancer, the AACR’s expertise has helped guide Vice President Biden and the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative.”
“Cancer touches nearly everyone, and it is incumbent upon us to fund innovation so that we can eradicate this insidious disease,” said Mitch Stoller, executive director, AACR Foundation. “However, cancer is not just one disease, rather it is more than 200 diseases. The AACR and its 37,000 members are at the forefront of the quest to prevent and cure all types of cancer, including breast cancer, which is the second most common cause of cancer-related death among women in the United States. Thanks to this exceptional effort by iHeartMedia Philadelphia and the support of the community in this Bid for Breast Cancer, the AACR will be able to help support the research needed to save more lives from cancer,” added Stoller.
