HIS Morning Crew Surprises Generous Young Man in a HUGE Way

Free Chick-fil-A for a year? Tickets to Monster Jam? Seats to see the Carolina Gamecocks play at the Duck Commander Independence Bowl? Which gift would you be most excited about? Dusty Hardee was surprised with all of those amazing gifts!

Dusty Group

A generous student from Duncan, South Carolina received the surprise of a lifetime from HIS Radio 89.3 and Dream on 3, a Charlotte-based charity making dreams come true for disabled young people. During a live broadcast Dusty Hardee, 20, and his mom Patti Lindsey were surprised with a free trip to Shreveport, Louisiana to see the Carolina Gamecocks compete in the Duck Commander Independence Bowl on December 27. While in Shreveport the family will be treated to accommodations at the team’s hotel, pre-game field passes and seats behind the South Carolina bench. Dusty is also invited to ride on a float in the parade. He happened to be wearing his beloved Gamecocks shirt when the surprise was revealed!

In addition to the all-expenses paid trip to Shreveport, Dusty and his mom received tickets to the opening night Monster Jam at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena scheduled for January 23. Chick-Fil-A of Haywood Road in Greenville provided the family free food for an entire year. You’ve got to watch this!

All Dusty Hardee wanted for Christmas was to buy gifts for needy people featured on the Angel Tree at the center where he receives therapy. In exchange he asked others to send him Christmas cards through the Facebook page Cards for Dusty. So far, Dusty has received nearly 7,000 Christmas cards from destinations around the world.
