What a night we had in Sturgis last week with their Mini-Miracle. I’m really honored to have been the host for this night for 4 years now. GX94 has been with the Sturgis Kinsmen & Kinettes fundraising endeavor from the very beginning. This year was a record breaking year. At the end of Mini-Miracle we raised $32,716.00. That is the most we have ever raised!
On Sunday the Sturgis Kinsmen and Kinettes presented Telemiracle39 with a cheque for $33,742.98 and over the past 35 years Sturgis Mini-Miracle has raised $794,494.00! Absolutely incredible!
Every year we get to meet amazing people and hear their stories. Like 9 year old Shaelyn Crook from Yorkton. She has a rare bone disease and has had to go to Montreal many, many times for different tests and procedures. The Shriner’s, Habitat for Humanity and Telemiracle have all played huge parts in helping Shaelyn and her mom Shannon with the costs and expenses of everything she needs. Her story is one that really shows what Telemiracle and your donation can really do for a person!
This year was Chris Maxwell’s first year at Sturgis Mini-Miracle and we had a lot of fun. In 35 years, he’s the first GX94 announcer to get on the “bed” with the ladies Preeceville BedPush fundraiser. Good thing he’s cute. Not sure those ladies would have let me take a ride on their bed.
Our 2014 GX94 Star Search Champion Shayna Scherbey was with us as well. She sang a few songs that night and talked about her year as the GX94 Star Search Champion. I can’t wait to hear her new singles which are almost done and will be on GX94 soon. What a talented, sweetheart of a lady!
A big thank you goes out to everyone who made a donation to Sturgis MIni-Miracle last week. I can’t wait for next year to be on that stage again at the Sturgis Composite High School, ringing those phones!
Fun Fact for today … To cook 1 billion lbs of pasta, you’d need 2 billion gallons of water – enough to fill nearly 75,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.
