Support the Summer Stealth Drive and You're Entered in the Fine Dining Contest! Hurry - Ends Friday!

WHQR's Summer Stealth Drive is back! Shhhhhhhh!

We're excited to announce an exciting contest during the last week of our Summer Stealth Drive! Everyone who pledges a gift between July 1 at 12:01am and July 7 at 11:59pm will be automatically entered to win three $125 gift certificates to The Green House, Quanto Basta, and Seabird, three of Wilmington's finest restaurants. You could win $375 worth of fantastic meals with your donation this week! See contest rules below.

After a few years' hiatus, WHQR is trying to meet our summer goal without interrupting programing and your donation will make it possibleFor several past summers your gifts have allowed WHQR to completely cancel the on-air pledge drive. 

Beginning Monday, June 19, you’ll hear our on-air personalities explaining this innovative fundraiser in short breaks. 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.

For this special stealth pledge drive, not only can you feel good about contributing to your local NPR-affiliated station, but you can feel great about supporting Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity. For every gift to WHQR, investment advisor Bob Loweth will fund a 2x4 to help build a Habitat for Humanity house. Let's make our community better today!

**Why are we doing 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 yourgifttoday and help us meet our goal before July 7.
