Cumulus Tucson to Host Annual KiiM-FM Penny Pitch Fundraiser to Bring Change to the Lives of Arizona Children and Families in Crisis This Holiday Season

WHO: Cumulus Tucson’s KiiM-FM 99.5 and Arizona’s Children Association, joined by sponsors Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling, Essential Pest Control, Finley Distributing and Saguaro Solar.

WHAT: KiiM-FM 99.5 will raise funds this holiday season for Arizona’s Children Association through the station’s annual KiiM-FM Penny Pitch. The campaign’s goal each year is to raise one million pennies to benefit Arizona children in need. Over the years, KiiM FM 99.5 has raised nearly a quarter million dollars through KiiM-FM Penny Pitch, allowing Arizona’s Children Association to help many of Arizona’s children and families in crisis. A staple event for the station, the KiiM-FM Penny Pitch raises money by inviting the public to donate their spare, pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, or whatever they have during a three-day live broadcast.

WHEN: Wednesday, December 15-Friday, December 17, 2021, from 6am – 7pm each day

WHERE: KiiM-FM Parking Lot, 575 W Roger Road, Tucson, AZ 85705

QUOTE: Buzz Jackson, Program Director, KiiM FM 99.5, said: “Over the years we’ve helped raise a quarter million dollars for Arizona’s Children Association, but the real stars of the KiiM-FM Penny Pitch are the listeners and sponsors in our community. With their help, we’re hoping again to pass our goal of one million pennies.”
