McSTOKED Day

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

By now you’re likely familiar with everything that is McHappy Day! A great day that supports Ronald Mcdonald charities all across North America. McHappy Day also supports many other charities, including a history of helping Kev’s Kids! This year, McHappy Day in Grande Prairie is going to help the Grande Prairie School Snack Program.

You can help the same way you always have. By getting something to eat or drink. $1 from Big Macs and hot beverages will go towards all the charities McHappy Day supports. You can also make a donation at any McDonalds today.

Zena will be checking in at the downtown Grande Prairie Mcdonalds with more details this morning. For now, plan on the Mcdouble… rolling through with your breakfast and coffee today, and then checking back in for a Big Mac lunch. You can do anything for charity :)

Biggest waste of money ever

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

It was deemed the biggest boxing fight of the century, and it certainly was money wise. Mayweather said it plenty of times; the goal was to surpass 9 figures all around, and the fight definitely did that, with each fighter getting over 100 million.

As far as in the ring goes? zzzzz. Both fighters were boring (more so Pac who we expected would have energy) and the whole thing was a waste of time and money. Mayweather did what he does, and win decisively with defense and the odd punch.

The coolest thing was seeing Jimmy Kimmel come out in Pacquiao’s entourage.

Not good for boxing. Maybe we’ve just seen it all?

Avengers on the other hand? AWESOME. Must see. go now.

Grande Prairie is getting an annual scrub and some love this weekend. The city scrub will go, with different neighborhood associations cleaning up litter. You are being encouraged to get a bunch of people together and clean things up!

The 5 Rotary Clubs in Grande Prairie are also getting together with grade 5 and 6 students for the 42nd annual greenathon with a pancake breakfast, bbq lunch, and picking up of litter.

The other green celebration can be very dangerous.. Sunday May 2nd is being dubbed World Naked gardening day. So basically I am not leaving my house.

Motley Crue- Home Sweet Home

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

Motley Crue has been wrapping up their ‘career’ with a Final Tour (with Alice Cooper) for awhile now with added dates, as many as they can… and that’s a benefit to you as they are coming to Edmonton on December 12th!!!! Rexall Place – tickets on sale this Friday at 10 am livenation.com

Friend of ROCK 97.7 Nikki Sixx says: “The demand to add more shows in North America has been overwhelming. The fans have spoken so we’ve been trying to find time for more dates in addition to the international dates on the schedule this year. We want to say goodbye to as many fans as possible so we added these shows around the holidays. No better way to spend them than with the people who have supported us over all these years.”

You don’t have to wait to get your tickets either, Kevin and myself will be beating the box office this week, your first chance to win is THIS MORNING! Listen live for more details on how you can say farewell to the legendary Crue.
