It’s OFFICIAL! Charity Case is coming to Gaston!


It’s Official… Friday October 28th … Charity Case will be headlining in downtown Gastonia at the Carolina Smoke Off/Celebrate Gaston!!

Charity Case began with special appearances on the Ace & TJ Show aired on Kiss 95.1 (WNKS-FM) back in 2001 and since that time has performed over 200 shows and raised over $700,000 for Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids, a 501(c)3 charity that creates magic in the lives of children who are terminally ill and chronically disabled by taking them to the happiest place on Earth… Walt Disney World!

The name of the organization comes from Ace & TJ’s motto on their morning show, “You Grin, You’re In!”

Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids is designed to enhance the lives of children in our listening areas who are terminally ill and chronically handicapped, ages five through twelve, by taking them to DisneyWorld with their entire family.

Each year, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids charters a 737 to take these children, with their sibling, parents, and health care workers to Disneyworld in Florida. Because of their special needs and financial strain, this is an experience that many of these children and families would not be able to know without the help of Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids.

Over the years, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids has taken over 241 Grin Kids and their families to Disneyworld. And during the 5-day vacation, all expenses are paid, including air travel, ground transportation, Disney Park-Hopper passes, meals, hotel rooms at a Disney Resort, and Disney Dollars for souvenirs.

Grin Kids is funded exclusively by listener donations. Some are large, some are small, but without the listeners, the “Radio Family” participating in various fundraising events, the Grin Kids trip would not be possible year to year.
