Local Radio Network’s Largest Fundraiser Set

Local radio network Redeemer Radio will host their Fall Sharathon fundraiser event Monday, October 24-Friday, October 28. Redeemer Radio is an area non-profit dedicated to nurturing individuals toward greater Catholic discipleship. Live programming will be available for 55 hours during the week as staff and guests from area parishes, apostolates, and ministries discuss how they evangelize and partner with Redeemer Radio in their work. National radio personality and Sharathon host, Jerry Usher, will be joined in studio with new guests every hour.

Executive Director Cindy Black commented when asked about the importance of Sharathon, “When you call in with a pledge to our Sharathon, not only do you keep local Catholic radio on the air, you become an instrument of the Holy Spirit to share God’s infinite mercy and love with all of our listeners.”

Redeemer Radio is primarily funded by its listeners, and will be taking donations during the on-air fundraiser, with the theme of “Sharing His Mercy” in support of the Jubilee Year of Mercy established by Pope Francis.
