Donation for Bob E. Day Scholarship
Nov. 13, 2019
Boyles Insurance of Clearfield, represented by Sherry Wood, left, made a $500 donation recently to Matt Day, right, for the Bob E. Day Scholarship Fund.
Each year employees of Boyles Insurance skip buying birthday gifts for each other and instead collect money that is matched by the company for a charitable donation. An employee is then chosen who then selects which charity to honor. This year Wood chose the Bob E. Day Scholarship Fund which is handled by the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation.
Bob E. Day, who died in Oct. 2018, came to this area from Michigan in 1967 to work at the AM radio station, WCPA where he became a fixture until it was sold in 2007.
At that point, WOKW, the rival station, knowing Day’s importance to the community, quickly scooped him up.
At his new station, Day hosted a popular local show, Sunday Super Gold, was the announcer at many different high school sporting events, read the news, and did live remotes, commercials and anything else required.
Off the air, he served as master of ceremonies, a DJ, host and announcer for many special occasions.
Day was known as the voice of Clearfield and it is easy to declare he had the most recognizable voice in the county. Everyone knew him as the man with a smile on his face and a song in his heart.
Anyone wishing to make donations to the Bob E. Day Scholarship can send checks to the CCCF, PO Box 1442, Clearfield PA 16830 or donate on their website clearfieldcharitablefoundation.org via Paypal.
