“The ‘WSSP Toy Drive’ being in its 13th year is truly remarkable,” said Chuck Sullivan, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Milwaukee. “Our listeners have gone above and beyond to help benefit Children’s Wisconsin and Robyn’s Nest and put smiles on children’s faces.”
The “WSSP Toy Drive” was broadcast live from Blain’s Farm & Fleet in Oak Creek, WI from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CT from Monday, December 2 to Friday, December 6. Programming featured several special guests including former Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler, former Milwaukee Buck Jon McGlocklin and Milwaukee Brewers General Manger David Stearns.
