Virtual Hugs and Real Collaboration at Annual Radiothon Distribution

APRIL 9, 2021/DETROIT – Funds totaling more than $1.5 million were distributed to Detroit area charities yesterday from donations received last December at Mitch Albom’s ninth annual SAY Detroit Radiothon.

The distribution ceremony was moved from its traditional press conference at the Fisher Building to a virtual event for the second year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. More than two dozen area charity recipients joined the afternoon virtual conference, and its recording is now available for viewing.
