What a fantastic way to end the year! HOT 107.5 teamed up with Crown Royal and Big Boi to raise 4,000 pounds of food for Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan which will feed 1,075 families this Christmas.
Those who donated received a free pair of tickets to The Crown Royal Affair starring Big Boi, Tito Lopez and Jon Connor with a cypher by Finally Famous’ own A Dubb da Gawd, Mae Day, Marc Elliott, Low Down and Supa Emcee. The event was hosted by HOT 107.5′s own Big Greg with sounds provided by DJBJ.
The night was truly about giving back to the community thanks to the woman behind this program: Didi Capers, Regional Marketing Manager from North American Spirits. Capers was also recognized along with Diageo and Crown Royal by the City of Detroit. Terrence Wheeler presented an award on behalf of Detroit mayor’s office.
A special thank you to all of the stores, restaurants, lounges, promoters and organizations that partnered with us as drop off locations. And a huge thank you to everyone who donated.
