The time is now for local charities to apply to be a chosen organization that will receive funds from WOWO Radio’s annual Penny Pitch fundraiser that will take place this fall.

This will be my 4th year as a WOWO insider, seeing how it all works and it is amazing.
Penny Pitch began in 1948 as a way for listeners to give their spare change, pennies, to help those who needed help locally. Over the years it evolved to supporting local charities who would then use the generous donations for a specific need.
2013, my first year with WOWO listeners give over $87,000 to benefit Turnstone.
In 2014, $130,000 was raised and given to support Boomerang Backpacks.
2015 was another record year with over $141,000 donated by listeners and that amount was doubled by a local company to more than $280,000 that was divided among 4 organizations.
