Steve Grunwald from WYCD Radio asked his good friend Jeff Schneider, General Sales Manager of the Szott Automotive Group, to make a friendly but cold bet for four days.

Grunwald and Schneider ask the community to donate money in one of their names. Whoever collects $ 50,000 first comes in from the cold. The other one stays outside until Friday.

“Live out there in the cold for 12 hours and then twice, it is difficult to get warm, it will be a challenge,” said Grunwald.

FOX 2 caught up with Grunwald just minutes before meeting his friend in front of the Ronald McDonald House in Detroit to raise money from this friendly battle. Ronald McDonald House provides care and comfort to children dealing with serious health problems.

Grunwald knows many big country stars and many donate

“Dirks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Charles Kelly, Lady A, Luke Brian and each and every one of them made a nice donation for the Szott team,” joked Grunwald.
