This weekend, our radio partners at 103.7 Kiss FM are hosting a First Responders Appreciation event, featuring recording artist Charlie Puth.

The event is limited to the first 50 people who donate $10 or more to Chattanooga Police Officer Dennis Pedigo’s GoFundMe site.

Pedigo was shot in the ankle as he responded to the July 16 shootings that claimed the lives of five military men.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, August 16 at World of Beer on Market Street in downtown Chattanooga.

First responders will be invited directly through their organization.
