"Jingle Bells in July"
. Please Note --> This is a Past Event!! .

After broadcasting the annual Jingle Bells Telethon on local television for the past 53 years, organizers are getting a boost from its “original home” to start raising funds for the upcoming December 2012 event. On Thursday, July 19th from 9:05 a.m. to 11 a.m. KXRA, KX-92, Z-99 radio and kxra.com will simulcast an effort to raise the first several thousand dollars for the upcoming campaign. The annual Jingle Bells effort actually began on radio at KXRA-AM in 1949, so naturally they have a soft-spot for the cause. The fundraiser annually provides food and toys for families in need over the holidays. Each station will forego its normal programming and will run the fundraising broadcast for two straight hours. In addition to current on-air staff members Dennis Anhalt & Patty Wicken, former Jingle Bells hosts Jerry VanKempen, Tom-E-Lee and Joe Korkowski will join the staff. Various Jaycee members and a number of Jingle Bells “talent alumni” will drop in to entertain. You are encouraged to drop off a check or cash at the station all week long, but especially during the show. You can also go to www.jinglebellsalexandria.org/donations if you’d like to make a donation online. You can also mail a check to Jingle Bells Foundation, PO Box 131, Alexandria, MN 56308.
