Broadcast live for fifteen hours from The Somerset Collection in Troy, MI, the annual radiothon is now in its twelfth year. The day’s entertainment brings together all parties—the people who benefit from these charities, famous folks who wish to call attention to them, and most importantly, people like you who wish to help. Viewers can watch the live stream on, listen on WJR 760AM,  and give through donations and by bidding on auctions and “purchasing” autographed memorabilia or gift cards.

Since its first broadcast in 2012, the annual events have raised nearly $12.5 million!  A 501(c)(3) charity founded in 2006, SAY Detroit provides pathways to success for Detroiters in need. This is achieved by direct efforts, with civic and community partners and through programs such as an after-school motivational learning center for youth, 8-18; a free family medical clinic; a housing program for working families; and other learning, health care and housing initiatives for Detroit’s most vulnerable populations.
