Beasley’s WMGK-FM Philadelphia raised $154,000 for local veterans during the live broadcast of the “John DeBella Veterans Radiothon,” held June 16. This year, WMGK also conducted a series of online auctions that included front row tickets to a Jimmy Buffett concert, autographed items and experiences with national recording artists such as Roger Waters, The Who, Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton and Joan Jett. All funds benefit the Veterans Multi-Service Center (VMC) in Philadelphia. In 10 years, WMGK-FM has raised over $1 million through the radiothon.
