From the bottom of our hearts we’d like to thank you for rising to the challenge. Together, during the 23rd Annual Dick Purtan Radiothon to Benefit the Salvation Army, we raised $2,339,440 in just 16 hours. A special thanks to all the volunteers, audience members and special guests, contributing businesses and a special thanks to anyone and everyone who donated at any amount. We had a memorable 16 hours. There were tears of sadness and tears of joy. A crowd of people filled the center court of Oakland Mall and cheered Dick Purtan and Purtan’s People on to the last moment! It was a moment we won’t soon forget. Click on the more tab to watch the video.
