Thank You for the Cans!

by Fontaine Family

Our Communities Are Awesome!

Thank you to everyone who donated their cans and bottles to help us fill up the moving van for Q97.9's Cans for a Cure!  Thanks to you, we not only filled our moving van to overflowing...we also filled up a full sized pick-up truck!  Businesses and individuals in the communities around both our Auburn office and our Scarborough offices were very generous, bringing in donations until the last minute! 


We all know someone who has been touched by cancer.  That is why this event is so close to our hearts...it raises money for the Cancer Community Center which helps those that have been affected by cancer. 

Thank you once again...
we are proud to be part of such caring communities!

Get Ready to Bid!

by Fontaine Family

Our 4th Annual Bid For Wishes
Silent Auction starts on Monday, July 17th! 


Here is your chance to bid on some great items and contribute to a great cause. We have items to be auctioned in memory of Nolan Thomas Williams with all proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Maine!

Nolan Thomas Williams was a beautiful son, brother, grandson and friend. Nolan died of Melanoma cancer just a few weeks before his 4th birthday. He battled the cancer for 7 months. He had three brothers Nick, Nate and Nigel. He loved to go fishing, camping and boating with his mom and dad and brothers. He loved Sunday mornings because it meant he got to go to church. His favorite toys were his match box cars and his CD player. He played the songs over and over again "What a Wonderful World," by Louis Armstrong and "Put your Happy Face on". This sweet, sensitive little boy left his family and friends with precious memories. All who knew him were blessed.

Each year, in Nolan's memory, we host a Silent Auction on Facebook with the help of generous donations from our friends and local businesses.  The money we raise goes directly to Make-A-Wish Maine to grant the wish or a child with a potentially life-threatening illness.  A wish give the child and their family something to look forward to...a bright spot of hope during a hard time. 

Visit our Bid For Wishes event page and place your bids!  Win some great items and put a smile on a Maine child's face!
