NASH-FM Launches Fundraiser For Hero


Staten Island resident and Hurricane Sandy hero Pete Vadola's house was destroyed by a devastating fire last month. Vadola (pictured) rescued over 200 Staten Island residents by bringing them to dry land using a small motorboat found floating in the street. While Vadola’s house was unscathed by the storm, a damaging fire last month has left the hero without a home.

After learning of Vadola’s incredible story, Blair Garner and his co-hosts from “America’s Morning Show” asked listeners to call in with information on how to set up a fundraising account for donations to help rebuild the Vadola’s lives. The response from listeners was overwhelming and a fundraising account was established at a Staten Island banking office of Signature Bank.

"Radio is at its best when it serves its community, and that very idea speaks to the core of who we are in Country music. When someone needs help, you reach out because it's the right thing to do. And that's exactly what Pete did during Hurricane Sandy,”

Garner said. “We're going to do everything we can to take care of Pete and his family. All I did was speak from my heart about Pete's story, and from there, the listeners of ‘America's Morning Show’ and NASH-FM rose to the occasion.”
