This past Sunday, March 25, WTIQ-AM (Manistique) aired an annual radiothon fundraiser for CBC. CBC stands for Cancer, Bay Cliffs and Community. One-third of the proceeds will go to the Cancer Society, one-third to Bay Cliffs and one-third to a community organization that is health related. This is the 51st year the station has been broadcasting the event.
The radiothon was broadcast live on the station from noon until 7 p.m. at Manistique High School.
While this year’s total is not yet available, last year the effort raised $56,000.
