WCSX-FM (Detroit) Morning Show Host Big Jim from Big Jim’s House is driving 27 hours on a rockin’ road trip from Detroit to Minnesota to raise $50,000 to benefit Gleaners Food Bank with help from legendary rock recording artist Bob Seger.
Big Jim will drive a Chevy truck (provided by Chevrolet) from Detroit to the North Star Bar in Minnesota where Bob Seger reportedly stopped and had a drink in his song, entitled “Roll Me Away”. Big Jim left for Minnesota on July 23rd and upon his return to the Motor City, Bob Seger and Chevrolet will make a $50,000 donation to Gleaners Food Bank of Detroit.
“I’ve always wondered where Bob stopped for a beer in the song, ‘Roll Me Away,’ now we know,” said Big Jim. “So, taking a road trip in a Chevy truck to the North Star Bar in Rochester, Minnesota feels more like a pilgrimage! And the fact that Bob Seger and Chevrolet are backing up this effort with a 50k donation to Gleaners Food Bank makes it even more important to “get it right!”
The $50,000 donation will be used to provide 150,000 meals for families in Southeastern Michigan.
