KENNEWICK, Wash. – A local radio station raised more than three thousand dollars for the Shriner Hospital for Children after hosting a car show on Saturday.
Jacobs Radio hosted the event in Kennewick and brought in hundreds of people, despite the weather. Cars of all kinds were displayed outside the radio station’s location on West Falls Avenue, just off Highway 395.
The car show was held to benefit the Shriner Hospital for Children in Spokane. The hospital primarily focuses on children’s orthopedic conditions, including clubfoot, scoliosis, and other conditions. They also help children with cleft lips and burns and provide all health care free to families.
“I’m a Shriner kid myself,” said Jeff Jacobs, owner of Jacobs Radio Stations. “It’s really important to me to be able to give back.”
The auto show brought in a total of $3,431 at the event.
“It gives me hope,” said Richard Redick, president of the Columbia Basin Shrine Club. “Especially as inflation continues and the economy slows, people continue to donate and provide to charities. And that’s great to see.
