Broadcast media across Colorado are joining forces for a live fundraiser on Wednesday, July 11, to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts in Colorado and to benefit the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation.
Rocky Mountain PBS, Colorado Public Television, Aspen Public Radio, KUVO, KUNC and KRCC will join Denver commercial television stations 9NEWS, 7NEWS, Azteca Colorado, CBS4, KDVR, KWGN and KDEN Telemundo Denver for the special broadcast.
The toll-free number to call on July 11 from 4-8pm will be 877-667-6727.
Red Cross volunteers will be standing by at Rocky Mountain PBS’ studios to take donations over the phone, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go directly to the Colorado chapters of the American Red Cross and the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation. Callers will have the option to choose whether to give to one or both organizations.
