This morning's show is being co hosted by the Brandel family of Tonawanda. Bill, Patty and their kids Rebecca and Marissa won the right to co host through the LIGHTS, CAMERA, AUCTION! event that benefitted St. Christopher's School at Nia Falls Blvd north of Ellicott Creek in Tonawanda. In fact, the bidding between the Brandel's and other groups was so intense, we actually gave away two DJ For A Day packages!
The entire event raised over $53,000 for St. Christopher's, it was incredibly cool to be there and help auction off our package. What made it even more special was that it was attended by Fr. Fran Welgden (the gym was named after him at St. Chris'), who often presides at the St. Benedict's where Linda and I attend, made it even neater...and put on the pressure for me to host a good auction segment! Speaking to a gym full of people, and priests you admire is much more pressure packed than speaking to those you can't see (on the radio), on any day!
Thanks to the Brandel family for being HUGE Star fans, for bidding on our package, and being great hosts on today's show! Maybe Rebecca or Marissa will have this job one day.
