Original story

94.5 KTI COUNTRY personality and Country Radio Hall of Famer Karen Dalessandro leads the "Squats for Tots" campaign at the new, state-of-the-art Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee on Thursday, August 23rd.

"Raising money for MACC Fund is the goal," said Dalessandro. "To be able to do this as the Milwaukee Bucks open their brand-new home is the icing on the cake."

Dalessandro and a host of "celebrity sitters" will attempt to sit in 17,500 seats to benefit MACC Fund, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer and blood-related disorders by providing funding for research.

The public can follow "Squats for Tots" on 94.5 KTI COUNTRY and Facebook Live throughout the day. Donations are encouraged through KTICOUNTRY.com and MACC Fund’s online donation portal as listeners follow Dalessandro’s progress.

"Fiserv Forum is proud to partner with KTI COUNTRY and MACC Fund to help raise money for this great cause," said Fiserv Forum General Manager Raj Saha.

The event takes place before Fiserv Forum hosts its first public open house event Sunday, August 26th.

"We’re looking forward to working with KTI COUNTRY and the Milwaukee Bucks to make this a great event," said MACC Fund President and Co-Founder Jon McGlocklin. "Every dollar counts as we look to find a cure for childhood cancer and related-blood disorders."
