Radio + stream marathon = Annual SAY Detroit RADIOTHON
December 8, 2022 | 6 a.m. – 9 p.m.

All-day fun for better days in Detroit

Donate, bid, and buy by calling 1-855-955-4483 or at www.mitchalbomradiothon.com

Since its first broadcast in 2012, the annual radiothons have raised nearly $12 million to help the poor, the homeless, families without homes, children without medical care, students hoping to reach the college of their dreams and veterans who have hit hard times. All funds raised benefit SAY (Super All Year) Detroit, an umbrella 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that funds programs like the SAY Detroit Family Health Clinic, the SAY Play Center, Working Homes/Working Families, the Dream Scholars, and several other local charitable efforts who care for Detroit’s neediest and work towards a revitalized Detroit.

The day’s entertainment brings together all parties—the people who benefit from these charities, famous folks who wish to call attention to them, and most importantly, people like you who wish to help. Watch and listen all day:

  • on WJR 760 AM
  • live video stream here and at saydetroit.org, wjr.com, freep.com, and clickondetroit.com
  • You can also watch on your smart TV through the My Michigan TV app.

If you’re able to stop by the Northside Grand Court of the Somerset Collection, you can make a donation in-person or purchase a signed copy of Mitch Albom’s books, "The Stranger in the Lifeboat" and the 25th anniversary edition of "Tuesdays with Morrie," and the proceeds will benefit SAY Detroit. If you are at Somerset shopping that day, please consider a purchase at our Brown Bag Popcorn store on the third floor instead - pick up tins of delicious popcorn for your friends and family, and know that all profits also go to SAY Detroit.
