Congratulations to the CatCountry 98.7 team in Pensacola and Country stars Brian Kelley along with Kimberly Perry and Tirgilily Gold!


These good-hearted and gifted artists were part of the 9th Annual Miracle on Palafox Concert and raised $17,555 to assist local families during Christmas through the United Way of West Florida.

Over the last 9 years, the event has raised over $144,000 to help families in our Gulf Coast community.

Brent Lane, 2022 Country Music Association Personality of the Year and on-air morning co-host shared, “Over 80% of the Christmas Wishes we get yearly are for toys and this concert was created to help make a bigger impact for those who need it.  The United Way of West Florida helps us assess the wishes and maximize the funds.”

Christmas Wishes is a CatCountry 98.7 program serving our local community for 17 years and was underwritten by Gulf Winds Credit Union who have been part of the event since its inceptionin 2014.
