It’s finally here: The Starke County Youth Club Radiothon will take place today to raise funds for the organization that helps over 600 Starke County children. With four sites throughout the county that provide after-school, summer, and recreational programs, more than 200 students use the after-school program each and every day.
Youth Club Executive Director Irene Szakonyi says they will be accepting pledges for six hours.
“We take over the station at 10 in the morning, and we are live on the air until 4 p.m. taking calls. Thank you WKVI and all of our donors out there,” said Szakonyi.
The key aspects of the SCYC program are education, enrichment, relationships, and community. Everyone is encouraged to make a pledge for this very worthwhile cause.
