DETROIT, March 26 - More than a dozen Detroit charities were grateful recipients of more than $400,000 in donations distributed from Mitch Albom’s “S.A.Y. (Super All Year) Detroit Radiothon.” The monies were collected in a single 15-hour broadcast last December at the Somerset Collection in Troy.
Albom handed out 14 oversized checks at a ceremony held at WJR Radio in Detroit’s FisherBuilding Wednesday morning. With him was Dr. Chad Audi of the Detroit Rescue Mission, which facilitates the “S.A.Y. Detroit” charity founded by Albom in 2006.
