ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A radio-thon on radio station La Mega in Allentown raised more than $27,000 to help people in Puerto Rico.
The event ran for 12 hours Wednesday and benefited the Red Cross.
The radio-thon wrapped up at 7 p.m., but people could donate until midnight Wednesday.
The radio station teamed up with officials from Lehigh and Berks counties for the event. On Friday, the group will fly to the island with U.S. Rep. Susan Wild to get an up close look at the damage.
