Hudson Valley Heroes

Jim Witt and Mike Bennett make a good team at Fran's Hallmark store in Monroe

I recently caught up with meteorologist Jim Witt and WHUD‘s┬áMike Bennett, coanchor of the morning show with Kacey, at Fran’s Hallmark store in Monroe. At this time of year Jim has been busy making the rounds signing his Hudson Valley weather calendars, and on this occasion Mike joined him at the store and joined in the calendar signing–an extra bonus for those who happened to stop by!

Each year Jim, a long-range forecast specialist, teams up with Hudson Valley photographer Joe Deutsch to produce these lovely calendars in aid of the Hope for Youth Foundation, which raises money to give to local groups that care for the special needs of children. This past year alone, the Hope for Youth Foundation raised $100,000 to help children in need. Radio station WHUD has long been a leader in community awareness and community assistance, and this cooperation between WHUD and Hope for Youth is a prime example.

Although Jim Witt is finished with his personal appearances for this year, it’s still not to late to order your 2012 Hudson Valley calendar. Send your check for $10.00 per calendar (which includes postage) to:

Hope for Youth Foundation, P.O. Box 8, Buchanan NY 10511

You’ll not only have a year’s worth of top-notch photos of our Hudson Valley to grace your wall; you’ll also know that your donation has aided the cause of giving hope to children who might otherwise have been without.
