Fifth Annual S.A.Y. Detroit Radiothon Held December 8, 2016

For the second year in a row, the annual S.A.Y. Detroit Radiothon raised more than $1 million during it’s fifteen-hour broadcast from the Somerset Collection in Troy, MI on Thursday, December 8. The day featured interviews with old and new friends, including Hugh Jackman Dr. Phil, Lily Tomlin, Tim Allen, Jane Pauley, Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Stanley, Alice Cooper, Dax Shepard, Jeff Daniels, Dan Gilbert, Andre Drummond, Detroit Lion’s QB Matthew Stafford, Red Wings’ captain Henrik Zetterberg, Mayor Mike Duggan. Joining in as cohosts throughout the day were bestselling author Dave Barry and jazz great John Pizzarelli, who crafted many personalized jingles for callers.

Though the final announced tote board put donations at $1,027,675.40, donations have continued to pour in, raising the current total above $1,045,000. Funds were raised by donations from callers and sponsors, as well as auctions of one-of-a-kind experiences, such as a trip to Los Angeles to meet Dr. Phil and attend a taping of his show as a VIP, brunch with Jane Pauley in NYC, private airplane rides over Detroit and to East Lansing or Ann Arbor, professional video taping of some time on the field with Matthew Stafford or on the ice with Hank Zetterberg go a jacket worn by Sawyer Fredericks of The Voice, which brought in the highest bid at $7,000.
