Magic Names of Show Biz Pitch In

A huge roster of national recording stars, supplemented by Miami's top artists sparked WQAM's extravaganza of fund-raising for Variety Children's Hospital.

Vocal stars Leslie Gore, Ray Stevens, Nancy Sinatra, Dick Clark, Dee Clarence Reed, and Delmiros sparked the proceedings at a lively Teen Age dance in North Miami Beach. They were followed by the Chanteers and the Rhythm Rockers and a big line-up of local entertainers.

WQAM's staff announcers then conducted a smash-bang auction over the air, giving away more than $2,000. in merchandise, such as Bolex cameras, Arpege perfume, clock-radios, watches, and autographed records. DJ's who pitched in to tell Variety's story included popular Rick Shaw, Lee Sherwood, Ted Clark, Jim Dunlap and Bob Kaye. All together several thousand In cash and pledges came in to boost the hospital's development program.

Thank, WQAM!

"A Labor of Love"

That's what they said. And they've earned the everlasting gratitude of hundreds upon hundreds of tiny sick tots at Variety Children's Hospital. The Dee-Jays who worked many hours before the microphones are shown here. We salute them for their whole- hearted contribution to their community.
