In 2003 support from like minded people helped CHRY raise over $70,000 in pledges. Due to that success we were able to provide another year of award-winning diverse radio programming. We upgraded our CD, Cassette, MiniDisc and Record players as well as purchasing some important processing equipment.
This year in our 17th Fundrive we aim to reach the same heights. Funds raised will go towards much needed studio renovations and the purchase of two new broadcast consoles ($10,000 each!). It also helps with the ongoing costs of replacing headphones, microphones, turntables, needles, office equipment and supplies.
The slogan this year is CHRY - fresh air. Since 1987 CHRY has been broadcasting programs that are current, original, fair, bold - fresh. To make their programs extra special during Fundrive, programmers will be interpreting and incorporating fresh air someway into their programming. So be sure to tune between Saturday September 25th and Sunday October 3rd on 105.5 FM or by the webcast for a brilliant nine days of original programming during the 2004 Fundrive.
Everybody who makes a donation $10 or greater will be posted a Donor Pack containing a circular CHRY fridge magnet, brand new Program Guide, and a tax receipt. For those who can afford more we have plenty of fantastic gifts. A donation of $30 or over will get you a brand new CHRY fresh air ceramic mug. $60 or over and you get a fresh air T-Shirt as well as the mug. We have guys and girls tees in all sizes. If you exceed the magic $105.5 mark then we'll put aside a fresh air hoodie and mug for you. Heavy supporters who donate $500 or more will receive all that and a very special gift. Gifts need to be picked up from the station.
This years prizes are also very exciting. In addition everybody that donates (pays up pledges of) $30 or more by 6pm Monday November 8th will be entered into the Grand Prize draw to win a trip, including accommodation to the Caribbean. As an incentive for you to pay up your pledges while they're still fresh, pledges of $30 or more that are paid by 6pm Monday October 11th will also go in the Early Bird draw for another trip, including accommodation, to the Caribbean.
By now you're probably wondering exactly how to pledge:
We look forward to your support.
