This weekend, FM 102/1 hosted a 24-hour radiothon called "Stage Our Stages" to raise money for the Pabst Group, Shank Hall, The Rave, The Cactus Club and The Cooperage. 

The numbers are in, and the event brought in $25, 482. The money was raised via donations and an auction of rock 'n' roll memorabilia and other cool items and opportunities.

According to organizer and Program Director Michelle Rutkowski, the auction is still live and they project it will raise another $10K this week.

"We are going to be holding a second chance auction for any items that did not get bid on, plus adding a bunch of stuff that we simply just didn’t have time to put up," says Rutkowski.

Go here to check out the auction or to donate to this effort to save Milwaukee's music venues.
