Aug 2, 2019 | by Beverly Peterson

During our recent “Christmas in July” event held at CherryVale Mall a “BATTLE OF THE BELLS” took place between the sister stations of our media sponsor Mid-West Family Broadcasting - Rockford to see who could raise the most for our Women’s Restorative Justice Program (Shirley’s Place).

After a fierce competition and display of bell ringing showmanship between Gordon Mays, Joe Pitt, and Steve Summers at 95.3 The BULL , Lisa Tyler and Matt Hall at B103 and Lou Lombardo, Zander and Lori Williams 104.9 WXRX


THANK YOU to our anonymous donor who matched 100% of the proceeds for Women’s Restorative Justice Program (Shirley’s Place) a traditional shelter for recently incarcerated and addicted women and their children.

THANK YOU to all our bell ringers and donors who helped raise $1,199.05. This amount was about 24% of what we raised last year, so your help would be appreciated! To donate, please go online at and click on MATCH CHALLENGE.
