Townsquare Media – Jersey Shore operates 94.3 The Point, 92.7 WOBM, Beach Radio 104.1 FM, 105.7 The Hawk and Shore Sports Network. I host “Nights with Jimmy G” on 94.3 The Point, but I also work with 105.7 The Hawk. I am delighted to post “Hawk Heroes” again. Each month on 105.7 The Hawk, we spotlight a local hero from Jersey Shore or New Jersey. Thanks to our friends at Sonny’s Recycling, we pick a winner, share their story online, and give them a $ 100 Visa Cash card.
Our recent Hawk Hero was Maryanna fasy of Little Egg Harbor. Maryanna Fasy is the cook at George J. Mitchell Elementary School. It takes a special person to feed hundreds of children every day. His patience, selflessness and dedication are second to none. Once again, thank you and congratulations to Maryanna! Want to name a local hero? Continue scrolling …

This time around, there are two Hawk Heroes, a father-daughter duo from Vineland, New Jersey. Miguel and Illiana Figuero are great people and thanks to Sam Santos this is their story:
Miguel and Illiana have created a pop culture review channel to inspire children with autism and special needs. They blew up the news and do all kinds of charity and volunteer work all over New Jersey and Philadelphia. Miguel started the show when his daughter thought she couldn’t be on YouTube because of her autism. Since then, they have over 70 million views and many celebrities who have been invited to the show. Miguel and Illiana do so much community service that they received the Points of Light Award which was founded by George w Bush Sr. for outstanding community service. Illiana just received the top 30 Latino leaders under 30 in New Jersey and was the youngest of the group. They are so inspiring and amazing and are constantly breaking down barriers.
Miguel and Illiana’s YouTube channel is called ToyQuest101 and is definitely worth watching. Their channel is dedicated to statues and toy reviews, commentaries and celebrity guest interviews, but more importantly, it helps other kids like Illiana achieve their goals. The YouTube channel has over 70 million views … AMAZING! Check out their new video below …
Great production, great personalities, great ideas … Miguel & Illiana are on the spot! They deserve all the credit in the world. Thanks for brightening up people’s day. Keep up the great work, all of New Jersey is proud of you!
