It was Pontus "The Man with the Blue Jacket" Lövemark, a familiar face to faithful Music Auxiliary followers, who on Saturday afternoon presented the figures inside the glass cage on the number of committed engagements and the number of millions they have so far withdrawn. Pontus' collection box itself is in third place over the boxes that have collected the most money, at just over SEK 427,000.
But there are still many hours left before the collection ends. Later on Sunday, it is revealed how much money that this year's Music Aid has finally raised. The collection record was set in 2017 in Umeå with SEK 74 million.
