WKZE fundraiser aids Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse

WKZE toy drive and fundraiser
WKZE 98.1 held its annual toy drive and dinner-dance to celebrate the holiday season and shower the Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse with more than 200 new toys on Dec. 11 at the Rhinecliff Hotel.

“Each year, WKZE 98.1 and its listeners come out in a big way to support the Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse’s efforts to give our children a happy holiday season,” said Kathleen Murphy, executive director, in a Center news release. “This year, everyone surpassed our expectations. Our boardroom is full of toys that we cannot wait to distribute, and WKZE 98.1 raised nearly $900 for us to purchase new coats for the children as well. We are so grateful to have the community rally around us at this time of the year.”

Attendees at the toy drive and fundraiser got to kick up their heels to Professor Louie and the Crowmatix.
