MOVIN 93.9 & RICK DEES IN THE MORNING 1st ANNUAL BREAKIN' & ENTERIN' CHRISTMAS!
It was the 1st ANNUAL RICK DEES' BREAKIN' & ENTERIN' CHRISTMAS! For the past two weeks, MOVIN 93.9 legendary morning personality RICK DEES invited listeners to nominate families that needed help this holiday season. RICK DEES picked one family from over 1,000 nominations received via www.movin939.com.
The lucky family selected was The Ratliff Family of Whittier. The family was nominated by Mike & Patty Soto, their best friends. The Ratliff's daughter Haylee (8 yrs old), was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and had 3 weeks to live. She passed away on November 23, 2006 (Thanksgiving Day). Even before she passed, Haylee was worried that her older brother Jeremy and older sister Jolean would get shortchanged during the holidays. The Ratliff family still needed assistance in paying for the rest of Haylee's funeral costs.
This morning, RICK DEES and MOVIN 93.9 ELVES "broke-in and entered" the family's home while the family was out of the house, and set up Christmas decorations, a Christmas tree, food, clothing and gifts, making the Ratliff's family's Christmas unforgettable!
In addition to paying for the rest of their daughter's funeral costs, RICK DEES invited MOVIN 93.9 listeners to get into the spirit by asking them to help support the Ratliffs! The response was overwhelming! Log onto www.movin939.com to see pictures from this morning's "break-in."
