Voting ends soon for Giles' and KLFY's "Acadiana Community Hero Award", so vote now!

John "JayCee" Falcon, afternoon host on 99.9 KTDY, a Townsquare Media radio station, has been nominated for the Giles Automotive and KLFY TV10 "Acadiana Community Hero" Award.

From KLFY TV10's website, an explanation of the award:

One deserving person or non-profit organization will be awarded $3000 from Giles Automotive for their hard work and for giving of themselves to the community.
The deserving person or organization that is selected by the community each month will be announced on KLFY TV10 at the end of each month.
Finalists were chosen from nominations submitted to Giles Nissan and TV10.

We asked JayCee a few questions about being nominated:

JayCee and his family held the annual 'jeep jaunt' JAM! August 8 to register people for the 10th Annual 'jeep jaunt', and he says that the turnout was huge.  "Even with temperatures expected in the upper 90s to 100s, people still came out to register" he says.  "We had an 50% increase in attendance over last year, and we couldn't be more humbled."

All proceeds from the 'jeep jaunt' and the 'jeep jaunt' JAM! go directly to the American Lung Association, the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research.  JayCee says, if he wins the award, he plans to use the money to benefit the American Lung Association.

Congrats on the nomination, JayCee, and good luck!
