For the past decade WLRA Radio/Lewis University (Romeoville, IL) holds a bi-annual fundraiser to benefit Advocate Hope Children’s Charities. So far Lewis U has raised over $100,000 for the charity. Twice a year WLRA has a “To kill a DJ” week where students raise money for the charity.
The Big Burrito Radio (heard on WLRA Saturday mornings at 10AM CST), wanted to come up with different ways of raising money for the charity so they started out doing collections at music events. Then 3 years ago they came up with Island Dreams. Island Dreams is a charity art card set that itself has raised over $10,000 in the past 3 years.
