We're only a couple of weeks post flood, and many of our neighbors still need lots of help.Â You can do you part tonight or any of the next 3 Wednesdays by supporting local music and the American Red Cross.
98.5 KRZ and The Weekender are sponsoring a 3-part concert series to help in flood relief.Â Your $10 donation at the door will help pay for cleanup kits, shelter and meals.
Special thanks to all the bands--
Six Guns Loaded
6 East Band

This is something pretty cool coming real soon to NEPA.Â WBRE is unveiling Â a new 4pm newscast in September.Â We had the hosts Dave Kuharchik & Monica Madeja in studio today to tell us all about it.Â And they invited us to contribute to the show!
Sue has already volunteered to provide her expertise on the Real Estate market, Lissa is thinking of doing concert reviews, and Iâm tossed between a few of my loves: Â Â microbrews, baseball & sideshow performers from the 40âs.Â OK, that last topic is actually a category from Jeopardy, but I digress.
Dave & Monica promised that this new show is going to be news like youâve never seen before.Â And they want you to interact through Facebook & Twitter.
Watch for PA LIVE!Â on WBRE September 19.
In the meantime, hereâs how you can chat with the Dave & Monica--

Last night was the 5th Annual WALK AROUND WILKES-BARRE to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bridge.Â Walking, talking, eating, drinking...what a great way to spend a hot night in NEPA!
We met up with WBRE morning anchor Kyla Campbell at the Kirby Center for wine and pre-game snacks.Â What a sweetheart.
Then it was off to Oyster for soup & salad and more drinks.Â Dinner was next...Crab Imperial at the Westmoreland Club.Â One word:Â awesome.
We topped off the night with rooftop desserts thanks to Grico's.Â The rain held off as we partied under the stars and high atop the city at the new Intermodal Transportation Center.
I've been a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program for years now.Â If you have the time, I highly recommend it.Â There are way too many young folks in our area that've been on lists for months waiting for a match.Â Get involved.Â Trust me, you won't be disappointed.Â
