Beasley Media Group announces 102.9 WMGK-FM, in conjunction with City Team Philadelphia, will present the 21st Annual John DeBella Turkey Drop on Tuesday, November 22nd on The Kimmel Cultural Campus in front of the Kimmel Center Building (300 S Broad St) in Philadelphia.
“The Kimmel Cultural Campus is Philadelphia’s gathering place for diverse performances and events as well as impactful community initiatives, from blood drives to serving our neighbors as a polling place,” said Matías Tarnopolsky, president and CEO of The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Kimmel Center, Inc. “We are honored to be part of WMGK’s Turkey Drop broadcast each year, acting as homebase for this event that plays such a meaningful role in the lives of those in need.”
The John DeBella Turkey Drop is the largest, single day food gathering event in the City of Philadelphia. Last year’s collection raised over 9,000 turkeys.
Legendary morning personality John DeBella will broadcast live from 6 a.m.- 9 a.m. and will accept monetary as well as turkey donations onsite. In addition, members from the WMGK-FM on-air staff will simultaneously receive donations from 6a.m.- 9a.m. at twelve ACME Markets located across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
