WORT will celebrate our 38th On-Air Anniversary with the “BIRTHDAY BOOST” ONE DAY ON-AIR PLEDGE DRIVE on Saturday, December 7th, 2013. December 1st, 1975 is the day that WORT first went on the air – so it’s officially WORT’s birthday. WORT’s birthday party is also taking place at the High Noon Saloon that day.
Why are we doing it? To address a projected significant fiscal year 2014 budget shortfall. A successful Birthday Boost coupled with the amazing hoodie-fueled success of our fall pledge drive WILL cut into that projected deficit!
Our Birthday Boost is inspired by the one day pledge drive concept that has proven to be a very successful fundraising vehicle for community and public radio stations in recent years. The Boost has worked well for WORT as well (last year’s Boost raised over $13,000!). The goal for this year’s Boost is $9,360! Tune in and pledge!
