Livermore CA Radio: KKIQ, KKDV Support Family Foundation

Alpha Media, Far East Bay announced that Jim Hampton from AC KKIQ 101.7 FM and AC KKDV 92.1 FM encouraged fundraising efforts for The Taylor Family Foundation at the Day in the Park auction fundraiser.

Over $2 million dollars was raised at Day in the Park. All proceeds from Day in the Park go directly towards funding and facilitating The Taylor Family Foundation’s mission to provide wellness programs for Northern California children with life-threatening chronic illnesses, and developmental disabilities.

The festivities started with an Epicurean Ensemble showcasing more than 70 Bay Area restaurants, local breweries and California wineries including Walnut Creek Yacht Club, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Yankee Pier, The Boston Beer Company, Va de Vi Bistro, and Zephyr Grill & Bar, all of whom have supported the event for more than a decade.

Hampton commented on the announcement, “I can’t believe all of the people who opened up their wallets to help the kids. It was a great day and we are happy to have assisted in sending so many kids to camp!”

Since its inception in 1990, TTFF has raised close to $30 million to better the lives of 60,000 children and provide their families with a respite from ongoing challenges. In addition to funding camp programs, TTFF provides financial and emotional support for children and families in the community who are in critical need. TTFF supports these families in medical crisis through grants that provide children with clothing, pay for funeral expenses, pay for medical devices, and help with day-to-day expenses.
