"We are very excited to have these three World Class artists perform as part of our Annual CT Snow Ball. Over the past four years, our listeners have generously donated over $50,000 worth of books and toys to the Children’s Hospital of Illinois," says Marc Alghini, WWCT-FM Program Director and host of The CT Morning Blend. “We expect this year to be an even greater success than the last three years, and we all can look forward to an evening of fantastic music and bringing joy and happiness to the kids over the holidays”
This year's CT Snow ball is hosted by Peoria's World Class Rock, 99.9 WWCT-FM in conjunction with Jay Goldberg Events and Entertainment and the Peoria Civic Center. Individuals attending the concert are asked to bring a new, unwrapped book or toy so that every child at Children's Hospital of Illinois can receive a gift during their hospitalization this holiday.
