WSAQ-FM (Port Huron) (Q Country 107) Program Director and Morning Personality Chuck Santori camped out on top of the Birchwood Mall in Port Huron last week, Sunday through Friday (9/18-23), in order to raise funds for St. Clair County Child Abuse/Neglect Council, which provides prevention programs for kids and raises awareness about child abuse.
Santori has been doing this annually for eleven years now, broadcasting from the rooftop and sleeping in an adjacent tent with a makeshift shower stall. He told the Port Huron Times Herald that “There is no greater need in my mind than this fundraiser. This week I have counselors come on to the show to talk about serving the children in our community and each year I get a little more educated.”
Santori began his week-long broadcast by being hoisted up onto the mall’s roof by the Fort Gratiot Fire Department. Pledges from listeners were taken by telephone. Santori told the MAB that he was told $125,000 was raised by the time he came down off the roof Friday night at 6pm.
