The 22nd Annual Whataburger Normathon will be the focus of the Norm and D Invasion from November. 30 through its culmination – a full day of broadcasting, LIVE on Dec. 27th from 6am-7pm at Crest Infiniti on the Crest Luxury Car Campus in Frisco.
The month-long effort raises money for the Austin Street Center for the Homeless, which has been recognized nationally for its remarkable work combating homelessness.
The event has touched and bettered the lives of thousands of people in its 21-year existence, and it’s all due to the incredible generosity and care of The Ticket listeners who’ve responded with ever-increasing support. Together over the last 21 years we have raised over $8 million to help Austin Street Center.
Besides the title sponsorship from Whataburger (who jumped on board from the very inception), the success has been incredibly boosted by the support and generosity of our friends at Crest Cars.
