Join 830 WCCO Radio on Thursday, May 25, 2023 as we host a live on-air auction to raise funds for Be The Match®, a Minneapolis-based organization that works tirelessly every day to save more lives through cellular therapy—including the life of WCCO's very own fan favorite, Jordana Green.

Last year, Jordana received a blood stem cell transplant from a selfless donor to treat her leukemia, which was all facilitated by Be The Match®. She’ll be celebrating her transplant anniversary the same week as the auction.

Each half hour, we will feature a mix of Be The Match® messages and storytelling as well as a new auction item provided by WCCO and sourced by on-air talent as well as sponsors.
