On February 7, media personalities from across the Great Lakes Bay Region participated in the 13th Annual “Hot Shot” Archery Contest at Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth. I was proud to represent Kiss 107.1 in the contest, vying for the top prize of $1400 for the charity of the winner’s choice. Although I didn’t win, I did earn a nice consolation prize of $250 for Kiss 107.1’s selected charity, the American Heart Association, in honor of National Wear Red Day!

Ahmad Bajjey from NBC25/FOX66 took home 1st place, earning $1400 for his selected charity, The Rainbow Connection. Runner-ups Caitlyn French (MLive/Bay City Times) and Tom Lounsbury (Tuscola County Advertiser) won $500 each for the Bay County Humane Society and the Great Start Tuscola Imagination Library, respectively.

Other participants in the contest included Johnny Burke (103.9 The Fox, playing for the Johnny Burke Children’s Foundation); Pat Johnston (WSGW 100.5 FM for the American Cancer Society); Peter Brooks (Family Life Radio for Youth Haven Ranch); Pat Clark (WCRZ Cars 108 for Autism Support and Research Center); Ric Antonio (WSGW 790 AM for Rescue Ministries of Mid Michigan); Jason Lewis (ABC12 for Habitat for Humanity of Genesee County); James Paxson (Mix 106.3 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Michigan); and Chris Easlick (WNEM TV5 for United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan).
