Well, we made it through the crazy week that is Funding Drive. After all is said and done, we managed to get $22,123 pledged thanks to some fantastic events, and the generous support of our listeners.
It’s not too late! Help us reach our goal of $28, 000 by donating online at CKDU.ca, call in a pledge to 494-6479, or drop by in person to make your donation.
Getting as far as we did wouldn’t have been possible without you; Programmers, thank you for bringing your A-game and believing in the station; Staff, thanks for keeping everything tied down so that nothing flew away in the Funding Drive storm; Volunteers, thank you for sharing your time with us, because without you we wouldn’t have been able to pull any of this off; Thank you to our sponsors for provided top shelf snacks for the lobby and prizes for our donors; and of course, thank you to our listeners, without you there would be no station.
Hopefully you were able to make it out to some of our events, and if you donated, drop by the station to pick up your prizes!
In the meantime, stay tuned to 88.1 FM for more great things from CKDU.
We’re halfway through Funding Drive and we’ve hit the $10, 000 mark! $10,132.70 to be exact. We’ve still got a long way to go, but I want to say thank you and congratulations to all the programmers who have worked so hard to reach their show goals so far and help keep CKDU alive! Thanks too to Tarek’s, Coburg Coffee and Heartwood for donating food to keep everyone around the station fed and happy.
The biggest thank you goes to everyone who has pledged so far. Without you, we would be nothing.
