Armstrong & Getty Raise $400,000 for the Travis AFB Fisher HouseTop
Armstrong & Getty
 

The morning show team of Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty, whose morning show is heard on Clear Channel Radio's KSTE/Sacramento and KNEW/San Francisco, rallied its California audience to raise $382,000 on Friday, November 11, 2011 - Veterans Day - to support the efforts of Fisher House Foundation.

 

The amazing one day tally was more than half of the nationwide total of nearly $700,000 raised through "Operation Fisher House," a nationwide week-long set of promotions that culminated in a radio telethon on Veterans Day, November 11, sponsored by long-standing partner Clear Channel Radio and carried on its more than 850 radio stations in the United States.

 

"Jack and Joe's efforts on behalf of our military families was just tremendous and was a true demonstration of the love America has for its troops," said David Coker, President of Fisher House Foundation.  "We're grateful to everyone in Northern California who supported us."

 

 

Thank you, Jack and Joe, for raising funds and awareness for Fisher House through the Team Fisher House Program.   Contributions to their online fundraising page continue, bringing their total to date to $400,730.
