City Proclaims Kidd's Kids Day

Aug 05, 2013 01:26PM ● Published by Mike

Longtime 106.1 KISS FM radio DJ Kidd Kraddick passed away while attending a charity golf tournament in New Orleans for his Kidd's Kids organization on Saturday July 27.  Kraddick who founded the non-profit charity in 1991 died of an apparent brain aneurysm— he was 53.

After more than 20 years of dedicated service to children in need, many DFW cities are honoring his legacy by proclaiming Friday August, 2, 2013 as Kid Kraddick Kidd's Kids Day.

Mayor John Terrell issued Southlake’s proclamation late and it reads as follows:

Whereas radio broadcasting legend, Kidd Kraddick was known on the air waves for entertaining, off the air, he was about GIVING BACK to those in need; and,

Whereas, Kidd Kraddick created the non-profit Kidd’s Kids in 1991 in an effort to provide chronically ill and/or physically challenged children and their families with an unforgettable adventure to Walt Disney World; and,

Whereas, Kidd Kraddick, who was an enthusiastic philanthropist, celebrates Kidd’s Kids Day each year, by allowing special guests and supportive fans to join in the spirit of giving; throughout the year Kidd Kraddick works laboriously to support children both locally and nationally for the Kidd’s Kids / Kraddick Foundation to date, and has helped hundreds of children through struggling illness; and,

Whereas, on Friday, August 2, 2013 the DFW metroplex will celebrate Kidd Kraddick’s life with a very special Kidd’s Kids Day, taking donations onsite, online, and on air to benefit Kidd Kraddick’s charity Kidd’s Kids; and,

Whereas, the city of Southlake commends Kidd Kraddick, both on air and off, who has had an enormously positive impact that reaches even beyond the DFW metroplex, and the radio industry as a whole; now,

Therefore, I, Mayor John Terrell, on behalf of the Southlake City Council, do hereby proclaim August 2, 2013 as Kidd Kraddick Kidd’s Kids Day.
