Community dinner fights child abuse

A free community dinner of turkey and all the trimmings was served at Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria Tuesday and was sponsored by Ellingson Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning and Fat Daddy’s. About 300 people attended. Many of them contributed to the KIKV-FM and COOL 94.3’s Radiothon to End Child Abuse with donations or by bidding on silent auction items. The event raised $1,047. The 23-hour Radiothon wraps up at noon today, Friday. To donate, call the pledge line at 1-877-836-KIDZ. (Lowell Anderson/Echo Press)
