Bonneville's B-105 Asks Cincinnati To Give "Cash For Nash"

WUBE is asking its listeners to participate in Cash for Nash to help Nashville and its residents recover from the recent devastating floods.

B-105’s Cash for Nash b
enefits The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving life in 40 counties of Tennessee. The Foundation oversees more than 730 charitable organizations in the state. It regularly distributes millions of dollars to various local organizations to help better the middle Tennessee communities. The Foundation vows to allocate donations strategically as different needs arise.

Two Ways Listeners Can Help Now:

1) Visit the B-105 Booth at the Country Throwdown beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, May 21 at Riverbend Music Center. The station will be collecting Cash for Nash. If every attendee gives even $1, the numbers will add up and make a big difference. Tickets are still available at Riverbend Music Center. Country Throwdown features 20 different country music acts – including Montgomery Gentry and Jamey Johnson - performing all afternoon and into the night. You can have fun, hear great music and make a difference.

2) Donate right now at Any amount helps!

100 percent of the money B-105 collects through Cash for Nash goes to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee for use in flood relief efforts.

“We’ve heard from the victims, and many Country music superstars, who have equated this recent catastrophe in Nashville to the potential in some areas of what Hurricane Katrina did to New Orleans. The rain may have stopped falling, but the tragedy still exists. Thousands of people need us. Now is the time for Cincinnati’s Country fans to do something about it and send not only financial support from money raised at Riverbend this Friday, but also a message to Nashville that help is on the way. B-105 is sure that after Cincinnati provides Cash For Nash, other cities will also grab the torch and follow suit in the months ahead to help out Nashville, TN in their own unique ways!” - Chris Carr from B-105’s Morning Show

WUBE and WYGY Program Director Grover Collins adds: "I am thinking we will do this at every Country show throughout the Summer."
