Cities 97, Minneapolis’ radio station to discover new music, has sold more than 30,000 copies of the 27th annual Cities 97 Sampler benefit compilation album, and raised over $530,000.  The station will distribute that money to a select group of nonprofit organizations that serve Minneapolis, St. Paul and the greater Minnesota area.The limited edition Cities 97 Sampler Volume 27 features performances recorded live in Studio C and is the longest running radio music or performance compilation for charity in the country.  Over the last 27 years, Cities 97 has raised over $12 million to support local nonprofit organizations.

“Our listeners get excited when we release the newest Cities 97 Sampler,” said Jeff Tyler, Western Great Lakes Region President for iHeartMedia Minneapolis. “They not only love the music, they’re proud that the money goes to help a wide variety of nonprofits in their own community.”

Animal Ark and the animals we save give a HUGE THANK YOU to Cities 97 for honoring our no-kill shelter as one of the 71 area non-profits that were awarded grants. Thank you to the listeners of 97.1 who purchased the Cities Sampler 27 and raised money to help many worthwhile charities.

Great Music, Great Radio Station, Great People!
