Our Rooftop Raise is right around the corner! We are so excited to spend the two Rooftop Raise days with the Townsquare Media Talent who will be braving the elements out on the roof of The Elizabeth Hotel, all to help raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention.
DJ’s from 5 different Townsquare Media stations will be rotating through shifts on the roof. Our friends over at Scheels have generously donated top-of-the-line camping gear and supplies to keep everyone comfortable and safe (don’t forget you can bid on all of this cool stuff in our online auction here).
Who will we see and hear up on the roof?
Schedules are still coming together, but it looks like we will have quite a crew of awesome DJ’s and content creators to help us spread the word about Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month, and to help relay stories of bravery and triumph.
Throughout the Rooftop Raise, we will be entertained and follow all of the events through the eyes and experiences of Madi Scruggs, Shelby, Maxx, AJ, Matt, Kama, Jacob, Dave, Emily, Kelsey, and Alex. Typically this crew is heard over the airwaves through the 5 Townsquare Radio Stations, but they also focus on creating all sorts of content that focus on local entertainment, news, and story-telling. We are thrilled to have their help and support in helping us tell stories of triumph, courage, and awareness!
