The Beaver 100.3 FM hosted another successful Camp Rainbow Radiothon, presented by Toyota of Hopkinsville. This year’s event, hosted by Beaver 100.3 personalities, raised over $42,734.
Camp Rainbow is part of the Dream Factory, which was originally established in Hopkinsville, KY. to give seriously ill children an opportunity to have a special wish granted. The program was then brought to Clarksville by Steve and Diane Miner.
“We will suspend our normal programming to help raise funds for Camp Rainbow” said Operations Manager Jared Mims. “Each year, we are amazed to see our listeners and advertising partners come together to support Camp Rainbow.”
Camp Rainbow is completely free for children and their families and relies on volunteers and donations from the community. Campers have their own counselor for the full week and are supervised by medical professionals from Premiere Medical Group of Clarksville.
“It’s a happy time, and those kids forget about their illnesses and pitch in to help each other,” Steve said. “The ones who benefit are the counselors and staff by being around those kids because they’re so courageous and have so much to offer to us.”
The Beaver 100.3 is honored to be part of the Camp Rainbow family. 5 Star Media President/General Manager, Katie Gambill stated “We look forward to hosting this wonderful event for years to come, and we are incredibly grateful for our dedicated staff, great advertisers and exceptional listeners who help to carry on the dream of Camp Rainbow.”
