Cumulus Tucson’s KiiM-FM 99.5 to Host Annual Penny Pitch Fundraiser to Benefit Arizona Children’s Association This Holiday Season

KiiM-FM 99.5 On-Air Personalities to Broadcast Live From Tucson Mall This Wednesday Through Friday

WHO:              Cumulus Media’s KiiM-FM 99.5, Arizona Children’s Association, and sponsors Cummings Plumbing Heating & Cooling, Essential Pest Control, Finley Distributing, 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. 100% of proceeds go direction to Arizona’s Children Association. 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. 

Over the years, the popular Tucson Country radio station 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.

WHEN:            Wednesday, December 14th through Friday, December 16th, from 6:00am until 7:00pm daily.

WHERE:         Tucson Mall (4500 N. Oracle Road Tucson, AZ 85705) – indoors by H&M and Santa Claus.

Buzz Jackson, Program Director, KiiM FM 99.5, said: Over the years we’ve helped raise more than a quarter of a million dollars for Arizona’s Children Association with the support of our listeners and sponsors. What’s amazing about the funds raised during the Penny Pitch is that 100% of those proceeds are used for unexpected expenses AZCA families face throughout the year. Imagine that your car breaks down and you don’t have the money to fix it, but you need to get your children to school – that’s where the “KiiM-FM Emergency Fund” comes into play. It’s a really special thing.”
