19 greater Cincinnati Marco’s Pizza locations will be hosting a fundraiser tomorrow on Halloween to help Hurricane Sandy victims. $1 of every “New Yorker” pizza sold will be donated to the American Red Cross. Halloween is the busiest night of the year for pizza companies, so it is a great opportunity for Marco’s Pizza to donate as much as possible. More than 7.4 million homes and businesses are without power from the Carolinas to Ohio.

Faces without Places to Host 15th Annual Yellow Bus Ball
Newport, KY—Faces without Places—an organization focused on supporting homeless children in Greater Cincinnati—will be hosting their 15th annual Yellow Bus Ball on Friday, Nov. 2 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Newport Syndicate.
The Yellow Bus Ball is FwP’s largest fundraiser of the year, and 250 people are expected to attend. Tickets for the ball are $100 and the evening includes food, drink, games, silent and live auctions, and musical entertainment by the Sly Band.
A large majority of the money raised during the Yellow Bus Ball is used to fund the Yellow Bus Summer Camp—an 8-week camp for homeless children in the Cincinnati area.
“The Yellow Bus Ball is critical because we have to have money to pay teachers and buy supplies,” says Board Member Karen Fessler. “We can get grant money for field trips but we need this fundraiser to really be able to put on a summer camp to the degree that we have always done it.”
The organization provides services to over 3,000 children each year but they hope to extend their reach even further from the city in an effort to support thousands more children in Ohio and Kentucky.
“The most important part of the program,” says Fessler, “is that we get kids out of shelters, we get kids off the streets and we show them that education is a way to experience a larger world.”
Faces without Places is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1998 to help students experiencing homelessness keep up with their education. Since its creation, the program has raised over $1.5 million to help Cincinnati children.
For more information about the event contact Karen Fessler at (859) 760-7097. If you are interested in buying a ticket for the event visit the website at www.faceswithoutplaces.org

Dear Jeff and Jenn!
I have been a long time fan of Q102 since I was a teenager. I listen to your morning show every day on my way to work. I’ve always admired the fact that you are a local show and are always involved in local events. Supporting the community you live in is so important which leads me to the purpose of my email. I am a volunteer for the Gallatin County Animal Shelter in Sparta, KY. We are a rural shelter and have been no-kill for almost 2 years.
This year we have dealt with a hoarding situation and we’ve had several dogs hit by cars that have required expensive medical care. We also have 3 dogs at the shelter right now that are heartworm positive. Treatment for them will cost us well over $1,000.
We have been selected by Petco as one of 100 shelters to participate in a contest to win a $10,000 grant and all we have to do is vote every day. We only have to be in the top 10 to receive this grant money. Winning this contest would go a long way towards our never-ending medical expenses. I was wondering if you could ask your viewers to like our page on facebook (Friends of Gallatin Shelter) and from there was have the links setup to vote for us. I’ve also attached a link of a story Channel 9 news did on us last week.
Please consider sharing our story with your listeners.
