Another successful KiSS 100.5 Carmine Ricciuti Christmas Special fundraiser for the North Bay Santa Fund.

Laura Twigg joined morning show host Kevin Oschefski to announce that $60,331 was raised during the three hour special, which ran from 6 am to 9 am at Twiggs Coffee Roasters on Fraser Street.

“Over $60,000 Carmine,” said Oschefski “How do you feel? I know you have tears in your eyes, how does it feel?”

“I feel great, thank you very much North Bay,” said Ricciuti.

The 24th annual fundraiser was filled with live music, warm beverages and festive cheer with all coffee proceeds also donated.

The special has become the single largest fundraiser for the North Bay Santa Fund.

Over 600 families in need locally will be receiving food hampers and gifts for the kids this year.

An army of volunteers will pack the baskets at 5 pm Sunday at Fort Chippewa Barracks.

Delivery goes the next morning, starting at 10 am.
