Townsquare Media’s General Manager Lisa Janes presented a $2,000 check to Principal Johnson and teacher Debbie Frost during a special news conference Tuesday, covered by television and radio reporters.

Children were in the classroom working on projects when Janes and managers of all six of the company’s stations walked in and “surprised” the teachers, staff and students.

81st Street School has a pre-school class that specializes in meeting the needs of children who suffer from Autism.

The donation came from proceeds at Townsquare Media’s “Little Black Dress Party” fundraiser that was held recently at the Horseshoe Casino and Resort.  Auctions for items from Shreveport-Bossier retailers brought in the money for the children at 81st Street School.

Principal Johnson says the money will be used for supplies and whatever else is needed by the class of seven special needs children.

Townsquare Media takes on special fundraisers with several events each year for causes like autism awareness, cancer research and other charitable programs.

We’d like to encourage other companies in Shreveport to match this $2,000 donation. Anyone can make a donation in any amount to 81st Street School. Call Principal Johnson at the school to find out more about how you can help with this worthy cause.
