50 Hour Radio Marathon Benefits Friendship Donations Network
Four DJs stay up for 50 consecutive hours to raise money for a local nonprofit. This year’s beneficiary is Friendship Donations Network, Ithaca’s food rescue organization. Friendship Donations Network rescues fresh, nutritious food that would otherwise be thrown away from stores, dining facilities, and farms and redistributes it to neighbors in need.
Businesses, organizations, and individuals can sponsor any number of hours or half hours during the Marathon. Sponsorships during the Marathon are what makes this event so successful. Your sponsorship is tax-deductible and will directly support Friendship Donations Network.
For one hour, a sponsor will receive three on air mentions during that hour, as well as acknowledgement on the Marathon Sponsors webpage. This only costs $40. For one half hour, a sponsor will receive two on air mentions for the low price of $25.
