We’re Broadcasting Live From Selah Community Days — For 107 Hours!
KFFM has left the building for a 107-hour road trip — see you in Selah!
We’re broadcasting continuously from noon Thursday through Sunday night, when Selah Community Days wraps up. We’re spinning music, giving away prizes (including tickets to Lady Gaga’s May 28 show in Seattle) and soaking up all that is Selah.
We’ll be tired, but It’s for a good cause: We’re doing this for the sake of 107.3 KFFM’s Team Eli, which is helping raise money for Children’s Village on behalf of Eli Berkheimer. KFFM is leading the charge for Eli’s family, which wants to do something for Children’s Village and the Children’s Miracle Network to show their gratitude for the help Eli received in his first weeks of life.
Here’s how to help, and here’s Eli’s story, as told by Children’s Miracle Network:
After a traumatic birth, Eli spent 3.5 weeks in Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He and his family also traveled regularly in the ensuing months to Seattle Children’s Hospital, benefiting from high-quality care, a home-away-from-home at Ronald McDonald House and gas vouchers for the travel. At Children’s Village, Eli has received care and services for his cerebral palsy since he was 4 months old, including speech and physical therapy. His mom, Amy, who now works at Children’s Village helping other parents, says Children’s Miracle Network helped connect the family with the people and resources available to help him. Today, Eli loves music and movies – and his second-grade classmates love watching them with him.
We’ll be selling copies of book that features Eli — and we’ll probably need coffee soon! So check in with us. We’re set up by King’s Row, South First Street and Park Avenue.
We’d love to see you, Selah!
