August marked Yingling’s second year sponsoring Country Legends 106.9FM’s Change Bandit Challenge. An event that raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network, the goal was to “rob” friends, family and coworkers of their loose change, and use it to help children in northeast Kansas get the life-saving care and services they need.
DJs Chris Fisher and Lani Novak pulled out all the stops to see who could dig deeper. Donations poured in over the air, and on the station’s website.
As a sponsor, Yingling’s had the honor of attending the Change Bandit Bash, an excitingwrap-up party where the proceeds were counted. The total? Over $19,000—about $7,000 more than in 2009.
Of course, the true measure of success is every child’s life that will change for the better.
