This is his 2nd year donating to tropical Smoothie Café Coats For Kids and 2nd year of winning the $250 Tropical Smoothie Café Gift Card. Jack said “Before this I had never heard of TSC and since I have used that gift card to introduce clients and friends to the brand and I can tell you they are hooked!”

CBS Radio big bosses Jerry McKenna & Tony Perlongo and sales representative Deborah O’Donohue took time out of their busy day to drop off a big box of coats that their employees donated for the cause.

“Giving back to the community is what we do. It’s in our DNA. We were thrilled to partner with Channel 13 and Tropical Smoothie Café to bring some warmth to those that need it. So many people on the CBS team brought in coats that we had to request additional boxes!” Jerry said.

Even Jim Prather, head honcho over at KTNV and across the nation, and also one of the nicest and busiest men in Vegas, took time out of his day to stop by and donate coats that his kids had grown out of.
