This Friday (August 16th) morning, KRUZ FM will be hosting a yard sale outside of the studio at the corner of King and George Streets. You'll find gems from some of our fine local folks that have so generously donated to the event, with all money raised going straight to Corus Feeds Kids. Come on down for some live entertainment and good times—the festivities will get underway about 7:30 a.m and runs until 9:30 a.m. Don't forget your wallet...there are some amazing items you're not going to want to slip through your fingers. PTBOCanada.com has already made a $100 cash donation to get the ball rolling for this great cause. If you think you might have something that you'd like to donate, please email Julie Morris to arrange for pick-up!
PtboCanada's Chalk Talk is a snapshot of people's favourite thing about Peterborough. Watch for us around town as we would like to feature your favourite thing too! In this edition of Chalk Talk, Catherine Hanrahan of KRUZ 100.5's Morning Show says "It's like Cheers. Everybody knows your name."

Kruz FM and The Wolf raised $25,000 for the Hospital for Sick Children yesterday during their 3rd annual SickKids Radiothon event at King and George streets. In total, $125,000 has been raised during the three years of the radiothon.
As the Examiner reports, about twenty Peterborough and area families shared stories of how SickKids helped them at their most vulnerable times. Donations were made online, called in, and at a BBQ at the radio stations held during the lunch hour. Congrats to The Wolf and Kruz, and the Peterborough community, for once again showing their generosity.
