Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 6, 2010
PLS is joining forces with WGCI (Chicago's 107.5 FM) this holiday season to make wishes come true. This December, the station will grant ten holiday wishes live on the air.
Each of the 46 PLS Loan Store locations in Illinois will feature a holiday wish box, along with wish forms. From November 22 through December 5, WGCI will encourage listeners both on air and online to visit a PLS Loan Store location and place their holiday wish in the wish box.
Starting December 6, WGCI’s “Morning Riot” team will announce a wish to be granted. A total of ten wishes will be announced and granted live and on the air over the next three weeks, concluding December 24.
“The holiday season is a time of excitement and anticipation,” said Brian Johnson, Vice President of Lending, PLS. “We’re very pleased to participate in this wish-granting program with WGCI, and we’re looking forward to making holiday wishes come true for a lot families this season.”
