SportsRadio 94WIP and The Philadelphia Eagles raised $100,000 more than last year's total during the 2014 Eagles Radiothon, setting a new fundraising record for the event. Proceeds benefit Eagles Youth Partnership and its various programs that serve over 50,000 low income children every year with a focus on health and education programming. The three-day auction (Sept. 2 to Sept. 4) offered Eagles fans and 94WIP listeners the opportunity to bid on unique sports and entertainment experience prizes involving their favorite Eagles players and SportsRadio 94WIP radio personalities.
?The kindness and generosity of WIP listeners and Eagles fans never fails to astonish me,? said Senior VP/Market Manager CBS Radio Philadelphia, Marc Rayfield. ?Every year the donations we raise during the WIP Eagles Radiothon exceeds our expectations, but this year we set an all-time record. Radiothon is a source of pride among everybody at WIP. By working with Eagles Youth Partnership we?re able to help children here in the Delaware Valley through important programs that improve the local community.?
