If you are going to miss out on the fun this Saturday for Lemonade Day, or if you want to help out even more, be sure to take the family out for dinner this Thursday at Beef-O-Brady’s in Terre Haute!


From 4pm-8pm this Thursday, May 17th, Beef-O-Brady’s will donat 15% of your food bill to the Lemonade Day 2012 project.  Great food and money going back to the community!  Hope you can make it out!



We at 102.7 WBOW are proud to be a part of the 2012 Terre Haute Lemonade Day!

It’s a great way to teach your children a little about the value of a dollar, a little hard work, and even how important it is to give back.

Get your child signed up to take part today here:

I hope you can join me this Saturday at Walgreens at 13th & Wabash in Terre Haute for a fundraiser benefiting the American Heart Association.  For every person who comes in and gets a free blood pressure test, Walgreens will donate $1 to the American Heart Association.  The event runs from 11am-3pm, and I’m there from 11am-1pm.  Hope you can stop by!


On Sunday, 2001 Terre Haute North High School graduate Steve Weatherford became the first person from Terre Haute to win a NFL Super Bowl world championship as the punter for the New York Giants.   In the game Sunday, Steve set a NFL super bowl record for most punts inside the 10-yard line with 3.

After graduating from the University of Illinois, Steve began his NFL career in 2006 with the New Orleans Saints.  Since then, he has punted for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the New York Jets.  He signed a one-year contract with the Giants this past July, and will be a free agent this off season.


The parade for Steve to recognize his NFL accomplishments will begin at 1:30pm on Friday at 7th & Wabash in downtown Terre Haute.  The route:

– 7th Street & Wabash downtown, heading east to Brown Avenue

– Brown Avenue east to Maple Avenue

– Maple Avenue north to Terre Haute North Vigo High School

A student pep rally will occur at Terre Haute North Vigo High School at the end of the parade.
