Today I had the opportunity of working with some PSA advertisement checks from several companies and filling out paperwork for the winners from different stations contests. I worked the board during my usual times which is 4-5:30pm and answering phone calls for the winner of the day during the “Top 4 Playlist” half.
Around 4:45pm we did have an on-air interview with Janel Lewis on the Lupus Live charity fundraiser on May 3rd. Mrs. Lewis spoke about where the event will be held, what will happen and most importantly what the event is.
The event is meant to raise awareness and research funding for lupus, an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks healthy tissue. Lupus Live will be held Saturday, May 3 from 7pm to 8:30pm at St. James AME CHurch banquet hall located at 1002 6th Ave. downtown Columbus. There will also be a walk that morning at 9:30 am at Lake Bottom Park.
It was wonderful to hear what Mrs. Lewis had to offer and say about the organization.
