WORTHINGTON — The annual Beach Bash, organized by Radio Works, is this Wednesday at Centennial Park.
"Every single dollar made at the Beach Bash goes somewhere in this community," said Radio Works Vice President/General Manager Chad Cummings. "We give all the money away."
Perennial beneficiaries are Worthington Christian School and St. Mary's School, for which the Beach Bash has raised a total of more than $10,000 over the last four years, and the Lake Okabena Improvement Association, for which the Beach Bash has garnered more than $35,000.
