I’m excited that I get to participate in Dancing Stars of Augusta on May 4th at the Augusta Marriot Hotel and Convention Center. The sole purpose of this event is to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Association. These funds will support research as well as programs and services for individuals, families and caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease. There will be two winners for this event. The Judges’ Choice Award will be given to the couple with the highest dance score. The People’s Choice Award will be accepted by the couple who raises the most individual dollars. Any monetary donation counts as votes for the couple you wish to donate to($1 donated = 1 vote, $5 donated = 5 votes etc.). Since the mission of this event is to raise as much money as possible, I’ve decided to throw in a couple of incentives for the two individuals that donate the most. The highest donor will have a choice between an autographed Coldplay poster or an autographed 8×10 glossy of New Kids On The Block. The second highest donor will receive whatever the highest donor didn’t choose. Donations for the autographed merchandise will wrap up on May 3rd at 7:00 PM. I’ll contact the highest donors the morning of May 4th.
This is for a tremendous cause that not only stays local, but also supports the research of a disease that affects more than five million Americans.
Fenway was born and raised in Greenville, SC. Just to go ahead and clear up, he’s a Gamecock fan. Still reading? Sweet! Fenway grew up playing sports and was always around music. Once he realized sports as a career was never going to be an option, he began looking into the radio business. Just two weeks after graduating from high school, he sort of snuck his way into an internship before he started college. Don’t ask questions.
Fenway paid his radio dues and earned his stripes for ten years, before accepting a better opportunity in Knoxville, TN where he and his girlfriend would get married, make new friends, and compete in a dancing event which benefitted East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. After two years in Volunteer country, an even better opportunity to advance his career in radio opened up in Augusta, with HD 98.3. Fenway and his wife are enjoying the CSRA, and continue to make more friends and create new memories.
