Boilermaker and Townsquare to take donations for flood relief
Flood victims in Oneida and Herkimer Counties will have some more relief coming their way as the Boilermaker and Townsquare Media are partnering up.
Radio mascots Tookie the Toucan and Jeremiah B. Frog will be wandering this year's post race party collecting donations from the crowd.
WIBX Morning Radio Host Bill Keeler says that all of the money collected will go directly to flood relief agencies.
"We do so well at giving to outside charities," Keeler said. "Sandy, we were there for Staten Island. We need to help out people who are hurting here."
Townsquare also has a petition on their website, which will go directly to the federal government and President Obama to reconsider the federal status of the disaster in our area.
