Help Western Montana Kids Have a Great Christmas With KYSSmas!
In our family of radio stations, 94.9 KYSS-FM has been holding the ‘KYSSmas For Kids’ auction for several decades. This year, we are expanding it to all 5 of our stations to help as many kids as we can this holiday season.
But we need your help. Without the generosity of local businesses, residents and our wonderful listeners, we would not be able to pull this off each year.
In 2015, we were able to take 368 kids Christmas shopping. It’s a private shopping trip for children who might not receive any gifts otherwise. Each story is is heart breaking and heart warming at the same time.
Stories like the dad who beamed as his children were able to wear brand new snow boots for the very first time. The 8-year-old who asked if he could spend his gift card on household items for his family. The little girl who exclaimed “I must have been good, I get TOYS this year!” while clutching a new sled and a teddy bear.
These families are your friends and neighbors from the Bitterroot, Flathead, Missoula and Seeley Lake. If your business would like to make a contribution to the auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to the children, please contact us at 728-9300 and ask for Scott or Briana.
The day long on air auction will take place on December 2nd from 6am to 7pm. The way it works is listeners call in to bid, and the highest bid will win hourly. Auction items normally have a value of $50 or greater (example, 2 free oil changes, dinner for 4 at a local restaurant, free growler refills, a trip to a local Montana resort, lift tickets and season passes to area ski mountains, etc).
After the all day radio-a-thon, we will relax for a few hours and then celebrate at the Sunrise Saloon for the final KYSSmas wrap up party, including bringing any auction items to be sold to the highest bidder that night. With great live music and even better drinks!
From our family to yours, thank you in advance and let us be the first to wish you a merry holiday season!
