South Bend - When the temps go down the utility bills go up, forcing some families to make the decision to go without heat.
That's why one Michiana DJ is spending the weekend outside in the cold.
His efforts are a part of U-93's Freezin' for a Reason event that benefits United Way of St. Joseph County'County.
DJ Artimis will be broadcasting live from the Martin's Supermarket in Erskine Plaza all weekend.People are encouraged to stop by and make a donation.
That money in return will go toward the HEAT Program. HEAT stands for Home Energy Assistance Team and provides financial assistance to anyone in need during the winter.
The event runs until Sunday night.
