Giving Tuesday was Nov. 28, and to celebrate locally, the W.R.D. Entertainment (WRDE) family of radio stations teamed with Citizens Bank of Batesville to help raise funds for the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch in Bethesda.
A series of remote broadcasts from the parking lot of the Citizens Bank main branch in Batesville was held to encourage the public to donate to the Ranch and help keep the organization providing girls and boys a place to live and grow. WRDE stations Arkansas 103 KWOZ, 93 KZLE, and 99.5 Hits Now broadcast the remotes.
Before the broadcasts, Citizens said it would match the first $5,000 donated. The final tally of money raised was a whopping $25,000.
Thanks to all who dropped by and helped support this very important local organization.
