Thank you to WTHR for featuring the event on 13Sunrise
Wheaton | Bekins and Give Kids The World are thankful to WTHR, the Indianapolis NBC affiliate, for coming onsite to talk to us about the nonprofit and the fundraiser.
Attracting a Crowd
While the majority of the fundraising occurred on the corporate level, we also needed spectators to cheer on the competing teams and buy dinner at the onsite food trucks.
That's why part of the effort to raise money for Give Kids The World included garnering publicity such as the 4:30 to 7 am morning show on the Indy NBC affiliate.
