Three weeks after the cancellation of their conservative talk show, Jim Quinn and Rose Tennent will make their first public appearance at a holiday fundraiser Friday morning.
The stars of "The War Room with Quinn & Rose" were originally scheduled to do a live broadcast during the event at the Geno Levi Salon near Donaldson's Crossroads in McMurray.
Although it was announced Nov. 18 that they were no longer part of the Clear Channel lineup on WPGB 104.7-FM, Ms. Tennent confirmed in an email that "yes, we are doing the event. That is my pet charity at this time of year."
The event runs from 6 to 9 a.m.
"Toy Treasures" encourages fans to bring new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for children and teens. The program, part of the Compassion Connection ministry at Bethel Park's South Hills Assembly of God church, also will accept monetary donations.
"We are really excited to do this," said Cindy Levi, co-owner of the salon at 4000 Washington Road. "We will be giving away some goodies and coffee, and I know that Jim and Rose will be signing autographs."
The salon also will be running gift card specials and taking $10 off haircuts for those who bring a donation.
Mrs. Levi said she wasn't sure how many people would show up at 6 a.m. but was hopeful daybreak would bring out a crowd.
"The more, the merrier," she added.
"The War Room With Quinn & Rose" was replaced with regionally syndicated David Bloomquist, out of Wheeling, W. Va.'s WWVA-AM. "Bloomdaddy" airs from 6 to 10 a.m. locally.
