Portland OR Radio: SBG Teams With KPAM For Vets Day Fundraiser

This past week Sun Broadcast Group’s Jeff Tracy of Barbecue Nation, and Eric Goranson of Around The House, in addition to Bob Miller, former KPAM 860 AM morning host, held a fundraising telethon on KPAM in Portland, Oregon all to benefit Operation Helping Our Heroes. Their 12-hour telethon on Friday, November 13th, raised over $40,000 for Veterans and military families.

Jeff Tracy pointed out, “This was the second year that Bob, Eric and I were involved with Operation Helping Our heroes, it’s really one of the most gratifying things that I participate in. Given the current social distancing, political turmoil, and uncertainty, I think we did really well. Last year we helped over 140 individual veterans and their families with the money we raised. This year I hope we helped more.”

Goranson added, “I think it’s pretty amazing that during these difficult times our listeners and advertisers could still dig deep and raise nearly $40,000 for our Veterans and families of deployed members of our military.

It was an amazing program for an amazing cause, and we look forward to raising even more funds for Operation Helping Our Heroes next year. For more information on the program and how to donate click here.
