Des Moines Radio: WHO Gets $20K Donation During Fund Raiser

Simnon Conway & friend
Simon Conway, Talk host for WHO 1040 AM was stunned during a remote fundraiser when a woman dropped-off a single $20,000 donation.

Conways was recently broadcasting from a local restaurant on behalf of the Puppy Jake Foundation, which acquires, trains and delivers service dogs to wounded combat vaterans.  According to Conway, during the broadcast  a woman who wished to remain anonymous came in and donated $20,000 to the charity.

Conway said, “I was numb for a few seconds.  The lady wanted complete anonymity.  Her dad was a Vietnam vet who had left her some money and she wanted it to go to a Veteran’s cause. She said she'd been listening to me for weeks and simply had to come in and make the donation. Just incredible.”

The restaurant donated 10% of its profits from the broadcast to the cause.
