Beasley Media Group’s 94.7 WCSX-FM Morning Show Personalities Big Jim & Ryan from Big Jim’s House drove 300 miles on an “Ultimate Restaurant Road Trip” from Detroit to St. Ignace on Thursday (4/29) to help raise money to help provide meals for Veterans returning home from military service.
Over the past three months, Big Jim’s House has supported small, locally owned restaurants throughout the Motor City. Big Jim & Ryan went north in a Shelby Mustang (provided by Ford) from Detroit to Clyde’s Burgers in St. Ignace. The duo asked for a $10 donation for each mile traveled as well as sponsorship donations to raise money to benefit Veterans Returning Home, a non-profit organization dedicated to feeding area veterans.
“It’s an absolute honor to raise money for a great organization like Vets Returning Home,” Big Jim said. “I spent eight years in the service and thank God for the men and women who I served with! Anything we can do to make sure they know how much we care about them is time and money well spent!”
“Nothing resonates more than authenticity,” said Scott Jameson, Beasley Media Group Vice President of National Content and Director of Detroit Programming. “Big Jim and Ryan exemplify local radio, connecting emotionally with our listeners every day.”
Big Jim’s House “Ultimate Restaurant Road Trip” received donations from former Detroit Lion TJ Lang, the Roger Penske Corporation, Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers, Def Leppard’s Phil Collen, former Detroit Red Wing Darren McCarty and Paul Glantz, CEO of Emagine Theatres.
