Beasley Media Group's WMGC-FM (105.1 The Bounce)/Detroit teamed up with Lafontaine KIA, Community Financial Credit Union and Lady Jane's Wicked Awesome Wishes to present Gello's Big Top Toy Drop. The collection raised over $40,000 in new toys for children during the holiday season. The event took place from Friday, December 6-13 at Lafontaine KIA in Dearborn. Michigan.

Morning Personalities Gello & Joanna took over the station and camped out in a tent for seven days straight at Lafontaine KIA. The donated items will be distributed at Lady Jane's Wicked Awesome Wishes and Ronald McDonald House in Detroit.

"This has been a life changing experience for me," said Joanna. "We truly appreciate everyone who supported the kids in our community."

"I am completely overwhelmed by the amazing support of the community who stepped up and showed out for the kids in Detroit," added Gello. "When a kid goes to school after the holiday, there are kids that will be asked what they received for Christmas. Now, over 4,000 kids won't have to lie and will have a brighter Christmas. To the people who donated, please understand how monumental and important your contributions are."
