Bill also told me that WRIR is getting great fundraising results when its volunteers offer to shave something. Dustin Richardson had his head shaved on Monday night when his $14,000 goal was met, and both Michael Miracle and Mike Rutz offered to shave something (anything?) on Tuesday night.
Now Dr. Evil has a special challenge for you -- if WRIR can raise ONE MILLION DOLLARS, I will shave Mr. Bigglesworth. C'mon, throw me a frickin' bone here!
You probably didn't know that Dr. Evil is a big reggae fan. Bill knows, and that's why he invited Unity Sound, one of Richmond's finest reggae bands, to play live on Global A Go-Go tonight. It's going to be a big party, so if you're in Richmond why not make your donation in person at 1621-B W. Broad Street between 5 and 7 PM, have dinner on us (food is from Kuba Kuba because Dr. Evil loves paella almost as much as Hot Pockets), and see a great band play in WRIR's Live Room?
