Eagles Radiothon Raises Over $300,000 for Autism Research
The Philadelphia Eagles have a close relationship with Autism research. Last month, during an open practice, the Eagles raised $475,000 from fans paying to see the players practice. The Eagles just announced that through the Radiothon, over $300,000 was raised from loyal fans purchasing fun Eagles memorabilia and access to custom Eagles experiences!
Along with Entercom, the Eagles were able to raise $363,746 for the Eagles Autism Challenge. All funds go toward broadening autism awareness and funding autism research. The Radiothon ran from Monday, August 26th to Wednesday, September 5th and raised the most money out of any radiothon! How did all of this money get raised? People tuning into SportsRadio 94WIP, Eagles fans, sports fans, etc. could bid on special, exclusive experiences with Eagles players as well as SportsRadio 94WIP radio personalities.
A few of the top auction items included: A Super Bowl 54 Trip ($20,000), Have Lunch and Watch Practice with Howie Roseman ($12,500), Be in the Philadelphia Eagles Official Team Photo ($12,000), Ice Cream Party with Doug Pederson, a limited edition 2019 Eagles Radiothon t-shirt designed by Jason Kelce, and more!
It is always great seeing a team you love make an impact outside the field! Go Birds!
