Inside WHQR

WHQR is proud to announce that NPR Political Correspondent, Don Gonyea will be joining us for our annual Fundraising Luncheon on Wednesday, April 13th!

Grand Ballroom at the Wilmington Hilton Riverside

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 from 12 noon - 1:30pm

In this election year, a super star political correspondent as the guest for the WHQR Fundraising Luncheon was a must – and we found the best, Don Gonyea. Heard currently on NPR and WHQR, Gonyea has enormous experience covering politics and presidents.

For our End-of-year-One-Day Pledge Drive we are running a sweepstakes for an Apple iPad Air! Make you pledge today and be entered to win!
