Hospice of Wichita Falls has been a huge part of our community since it first arrived in 1985, and each year they hold a Tree of Lights fundraising campaign that finishes up with what we call “Radio Day.” That’s the day that 102.3 The Bull turns the station over to the people from Hospice of Wichita Falls and the families of those they've helped over the years.

This year's Hospice Radio Day is Friday, December 15 from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.

We’ll be playing Christmas music, visiting with staff from Hospice of Wichita Falls, hearing from the people whose lives they’ve touched, and taking donations. Just $10 lights a light and you can light as many as you like in memory of someone special, in honor of someone special, or just because. If the fundraising goal of $200,000 is reached, the star atop the Hospice Tree Of Lights on the Chase Bank building on Kemp will be lit for the rest of the Christmas season.

Here at 102.3 The Bull, Radio Day for Hospice of Wichita Falls is a huge part of our Christmas season and we’re thrilled to be a part of the Tree Of Lights campaign every December. We hope you’ll be a part of it as well.

There are several ways you can light a light or two:

1 - Call In

We've got Hospice volunteers manning the phones all day, so punch in 940.687.3555 and make your pledge.

2 - Log On

You could even come by our studios in Parker Square and drop off your donation, we'd love to meet you! We're on the second floor of the Fidelity Bank building at the corner of Kemp and Kell. Just don't be surprised if we put a microphone in front of you while you're here!

However you choose to help, and whether you light a light in honor or in memory of someone special in your life, your donation is a lasting tribute. Throughout the year, your Tree of Lights contribution allows Hospice of Wichita Falls to continue providing home and inpatient care to those with life-threatening illnesses and support for their families.

Hospice of Wichita Falls and all of us here at Townsquare Media thank you very much. And who knows, Santa might even be watching to see how many lights you light ...
