Kix Country and its listeners pay it forward

It was a truly heartwarming moment on 95.9 Kix Country as co-hosts Trini Triggs and Melissa Tucker gave a very special gift to a very special listener.

While playing the Hi-Low Jackpot game on Feb. 20 Amber Downey called in. Her guess to try and win the jackpot was off by only 88 cents. Trini asked her what she would have done with the money if she’d won the game and Amber said all she wanted to do was pay for her son Anthony to participate in the local Wee Tee league.

Another listen, Dana Prewitt, went on to win the jackpot. While Trini and Melissa discussed putting the money together to cover Anthony’s registration fees and cleats, Dana spent some of her winnings to pay it forward and get Anthony a brand new bag to carry his gear in.

Amber and Anthony visited the station Feb. 21 and were overjoyed to receive money from Trini and Melissa, a gear bag from Dana, and a bat and glove from yet another Kix listener, Ashley Fredieu, who was watching the Facebook livestream of the morning show.

We love our listeners!
