WHQR Summer Stealth Drive Countdown

Jun 27, 2017

Here at WHQR, our Summer Drive is sounding very different – that’s because it is the Summer Stealth Drive and it’s going on right now!

We’re trying to meet our summer goal of $75,000 without interrupting programing. It seems like a crazy idea, but your donation will make it possibleFor the past two summers your gifts have allowed WHQR to completely cancel the on-air pledge drive. 

Why do we do this? Because we love the programming, just like you do and we want to be able to bring it to you in its entirety, without interruptions! Make your gift today and help us meet our goal before July 19, our first scheduled ‘traditional’ pledge drive day.

Beginning this week, you’ll hear our on-air personalities explaining this innovative fundraiser idea. You’ll see a lot on social media and in email explaining what we’re doing and why listener support is so important to HQR News and Classical HQR. It’s our largest and most reliable source of funding. Nothing we do would be possible without you. This is the fundraiser. It’s time to give.

We have some fantastic giveaways scheduled from the end of June throughout July. We’ll be giving away a $500 gift certificate from Albert F. Rhodes Jewelers, a $500 gift certificate from Wilmington Optometry Eyewear, a $500 gift certificate from Pomegranate Books, a $500 gift certificate from Learning Express Toys, a $500 gift certificate from Spectrum Fine Jewelry, and an Apple iPad Air

We’re really excited about this new approach to fundraising, and we hope you are too. Help us make history by meeting our summer goal of $75,000 with zero program interruptions!

Thank you very much for your past support and for being such a great friend to HQR News 91.3fm and Classical HQR 92.7fm.
