They did it. The Starke County Youth Club successfully raised over $40,000 during the radiothon on WKVI, and they’re still counting donations.

Youth Club Executive Director Irene Szakonyi thanked everyone involved in the six-hour fundraiser that took place yesterday.

“Thank you so much, and really, it isn’t me– it is the combination of all of these wonderful people in our community. WKVI, you guys are awesome. It is our board of directors, our staff, the families, the communities, friends, and neighbors, that we have who opened up their checkbooks today and really came through for our kids,” said Szakonyi.

The club provides services every year for more than 600 students in each of the Starke County school systems.
