Samara-Anderson Walk Award: Jennifer Foxx & Star 92.9

Posted On October 29, 2014 By | No Comments on Samara-Anderson Walk Award: Jennifer Foxx & Star 92.9

For the past several years, Star 92.9 and Planet 96.7 have sponsored the COTS Walk. They brainstorm with us on creative ways to reach their listeners and encourage them to be part the annual Walk, which raises awareness and much needed funds to address homelessness in our community.

This spring, Jennifer and Star went above and beyond with their support of COTS – by bringing “American Idol” finalist and pop singer James Durbin to Burlington, all the way from California, to perform for supporters who attended this year’s COTS Walk in May.

James was beyond gracious. Before playing that afternoon, he toured COTS programs, meeting individually and privately with guests staying in shelter.

And, he was kind to Walkers, too – inviting fans to join him on stage, under the bandshell and out of the rain. He then spent hours afterwards signing autographs and posing for pictures – all of this before boarding a plane early the next morning, to take a flight with five connections to return home. (That’s the reverse of the same five connections he’d made the night before the Walk.)

Not only did Jennifer and Star arrange for James to be with us to celebrate the 25th Annual COTS Walk, they helped promote his appearance and host him during his visit to Vermont. They helped make the 25th Annual Walk extra special for COTS and for our Walkers.

Jennifer and her family are always at the Walk – and they walk with us, every step of the way. Thank you.
