So we are just 5 days away until the 2017 Ocean of Love Billboard Radiothon is underway.

On Monday, October 23rd at 5p, I will go up on the Billboard in the Target/Lowes Shopping Center on Hooper Ave in Toms River, and live up there all week long as we strive to hit our goal of $105,700 for Ocean of Love.

Ocean of Love is a non-profit, charitable 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to helping Ocean County children with cancer and their families.  Their purpose is to assist the children through their illness.  They provide financial and emotional support so that they can experience the “normal” joys of childhood, knowing their lives are significant and meaningful to each and every one of us.

I was fortunate to be part of the first Radiothon back in 1998 when it began with another radio station. When that radio station changed formats in 2005, we took over here at 105.7 The Hawk.

This year marks the 20th Billboard Radiothon fundraiser, and I am proud to say that this will be my 10th time living on the Billboard raising money for Ocean of Love. (One time was with the other station)

We have put together a slideshow of all the Billboard Radiothons here at the Hawk going back to 2005.

It's nice to look back and see how young we all were and also see some amazing people that have been a huge part of the Radiothon over all these years.

Enjoy a trip down memory lane!
