Thank You!!!

Jun 27, 2018

You did it - we've made history together again! As of 7pm on Tuesday, July 17th, you helped WHQR raise $70,865 during the Summer Stealth Drive, exceeding the goal of $70,000 and allowing us to CANCEL the traditional on-air summer fundraiser! 

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 $70,000 without interrupting programing. It seems like a crazy idea, but your donation will make it possibleFor the past three 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 18, which would be our first scheduled ‘traditional’ pledge drive day. 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 to Spectrum Fine Jewelry, $500 gift card to Wilmington Optometry Eyewear, $500 GC to Protocol, $500 GC to Sage Salon and Spa, and an HD Radio and Smart Speaker Bundle for Your Home (includes an Amazon Echo and three Amazon Dots).

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 $70,000 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.
