More than 200 families will find their tables slightly more bountiful due to a free turkey giveaway, hosted by Steve Harvey and the Columbus Presidents Motorcylce Club.
Radio and TV personality Steve Harvey gives away 100 turkeys annually to each of the 80 cities in which his show broadcasts, including Columbus, where he airs on Magic 103.1.
Its a lot of turkeys that he gives away, and to large cities, small cities, any city that his show airs, Clear Channel Radio host Edgar Champagne said. We appreciate everyone listening to the radio, and Steve says hes been blessed and he just wants to give back. Theres no charge. You just get in line, and if youre in line you get one of the first 100 turkeys.
During the past few years, the Columbus Presidents Motorcycle Club has teamed up with The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation, and added 150 turkeys to the count meaning 250 needy families will have a free main course for Thanksgiving.
The giveaway was held on a first-come, first-served basis at the Liberty Theater until 11:30 a.m. By 10 a.m., an estimated 130 turkeys had already been handed out by about a dozen volunteers from the Presidents Motorcycle Club.
