Power 98’s “28 Hour Broadcast” Raised $30,000 For The Center Of Hope!
No Limit Larry and the Morning Maddhouse broadcasted live for 28 consecutive hours from the Salvation Army’s Center of Hope to raise funds and awareness for homeless women and children in the Charlotte Metropolitan area.
Our goal was to raise $15,000 but with the help and dedication of the Charlotte community, local celebrities, and friends of the station, (including Anthony Hamilton, Dutchess of Black Ink, as well as Thomas Davis and Charles Johnson of the Carolina Panthers) we were able to raise over $30,000!
Charlotte’s own singer Anthony Hamilton took time out of his day to donate and spend time with the women & kids of the Center of Hope, and he shared how his experiences growing up drives him to give back to his community.
Ms. Jessica ‘The Girl Next Door’ from Nolimit Larry and the Morning Maddhouse talks with Deronda Metz, Director of Social Services to the Salvation Army Center of Hope Shelter, about how your donations will specifically help benefit Charlotte’s largest women & kids shelter!

We also hosted a beauty bar for the residents featuring free hair, nail and massage services, in addition to free haircuts for the young boys.
Charlotte Ultimate Cheer hosted a free cheerleading clinic for the young girls and Wacky World Ice Cream trucks provided free ice cream for the residents.
Special thanks to Myers Park United Methodist Church for agreeing to match our $15,000!
We look forward to do this again next year!
