We have been blessed in both our personal and professional lives and feel it is important to give back to our local community.  Kenny Flint featuring the Rough Diamond Band has committed to donating our talents to several local charities that we feel support those in need in our community.  Check out just some of the things we have done and help support these worthy causes!

Mason Dixon's Christmas Wish...

Kenny Flint featuring The Rough Diamond Band is proud to have donated their services for the forth year to the Mason Dixon Christmas Wish Fundraiser held at Gator Ford located at I-4 Exit 10.  This event is sponsored by The High Rollers Car Club and Gator Ford.  This is a wonderful charity that helps local families in need have a decent Christmas.

Mason has worked his Christmas Wish Magic for over 12 years. In 2002, Mason Dixon Christmas Wish Fund, Inc. became a Florida non-profit corporation, and a designated 501c (3) charity. His charity is completely volunteer based. There are no salaries paid and no professional fundraisers are hired. Well over 90% of the money that is contributed goes right back out to the families in need.

The Mason Dixon Christmas Wish Fund helps families in the Tampa Bay area. Most families they help are those that have fallen on hard times due to job loss, an illness, lack of child support or other mishaps. Generally, these families have fallen through the cracks of public assistance and just need a helping hand.

WHAT:  The Mason Dixon Christmas Wish Fund provides the families with cash, a check, toys and/or certificates.

WHERE: The money raised stays in the Tampa Bay area. In order to hold expenses, they run Christmas Wish out of the offices of Q105.

HOW: Relatives, friends or those in need are welcome to send letters that explain the hard times that are upon them. All letters are read and evaluated. Wishes are granted both on and off the air.

WHY: Because Mason Dixon’s Christmas Wish Fund, Inc. along with Q105 care about those who are in need in the Tampa Bay area communities.


Habitat for Humanity ...

Kenny Flint featuring The Rough Diamond Band are proud to announce their affiliation with The Plant City Chapter of Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County.  Rough Diamond Productions has committed to donate their time for all press releases, flyer's and announcements for this worthy cause.  The Rough Diamond Band has also committed to at least 2 free shows for this wonderful organization.  We are proud to help support our local community.
