Patrick Lives On teams with WCGO and Chicago Actors to benefit local food banks.
Tune in for Patrick Lives On’s First Radiothon!
Sunday, Sep 27 & Oct 4 - 1 PM - 3 PM

We're teaming up with Bill and Kerri on Playtime, the nation's only commercial radio program fully dedicated to the Arts and working together to mitigate violence in our communities. WCGO is Chicago's SmartTalk, on 1590 AM, 95.9 FM.  Tune in, listen online, or on Facebook Live. 

Join us for live on-air interviews with your favorite actors from

Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, along with many of Patrick Lives On Sponsors and Scholarship Recipients.

As food scarcity makes children vulnerable to gangs, guns, and violence, and, in light of the pandemic, all proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to local Food Pantries in Niles Township, Maine Township, Des Plaines, and Elk Grove Village Township.

Be sure to listen in, and if you are able, call in your pledge to help keep our youth safe!
