Fairchild Radio Raised $3,700 on Pink Day

2015-10-23 (星期五)

Multicultural radio station Fairchild Radio organized its second Pink Day at Aberdeen Centre in Richmond on October 23 and raised over $3,700 in four hours.  All proceeds were donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to fund the research, treatment and prevention of the disease.

With an eye-catching pink colored booth set up near the food court from noon to 4pm, Fairchild Radio’s DJs and staff attracted a big crowd during the mall’s busy lunch hour. Many fans also came to support their favorite on-air personalities who sold the Foundation’s pink pins, pink socks and pink mittens for charity.   One of the listeners, who wanted to remain anonymous, even made a donation of $1,000 at the booth.

On top of the charity booth on Pink Day, Fairchild Radio also promoted awareness of breast cancer for the whole month of October. Interviews, forums and 1-min educational segments were produced and aired on AM1470 and 96.1FM. Similar programming was also done by Fairchild Radio’s branch stations in Toronto and Calgary.
