Lance and Mac Returns Home for Crusade

 

Lance Burton, the Master Magician, visited home sweet home Kentuckiana along with the other favorite son, Mac King. They weren’t just hanging out at the Waffle House getting it scattered, splattered, smothered, and covered. Nopey. They were live last night for Channel 11’s 52nd Annual WHAS Crusade for Children Variety Show.

The digs were pretty good too. The show took place in the wonderful Bomhard Theater at the Kentucky Center in downtown Louisville.

In 2004, the WHAS Crusade for Children raised more than 6 million dollars and provided 177 grants to 146 different agencies and programs. Over 100,000 children are receiving help this year because of the generosity of Kentucky and Indiana residents, as well as people from across the world.

The WHAS Crusade for Children, Inc. is supported by almost 200 paid and volunteer fire departments, hundreds of churches, civic groups, employee clubs, payroll deduction withholdings and thousands of individual donors. One hundred percent of every donation given to the WHAS Crusade for Children goes to help a special needs child. Since 1954, residents of Kentuckiana have given more than $108 million to help better the lives of special needs children in all 120 counties in Kentucky and more than 50 in southern Indiana. The WHAS Crusade for Children is the most successful single station radio/telethon in the nation.

Update: “It took about 50 minutes to read all of the pledges but when the grand total was read Pleasure Ridge Park’s fire department had raised $300,001 for the 52nd annual Crusade for Children.

It is hard to believe that 50 years ago, they raised $400,” said Chief Doug Atwell. “We are very proud not on of our firefighters but the people in our community.”

PRP’s total this year pushed the Departments over all collections for the Crusade over 50 years to $5 million.
