Thank You for Your Support During Live Drive 2013

Apr 2, 2013

We often say the DJ's and behind-the-scenes staff at WNKU are simply stewards of the music.  The real people behind maintaining this musical treasure we call WNKU are the contributing members. 

So, thank you to the nearly 1200  people who became first-time members, renewed their memberships, or gave an additional gift to WNKU during our Live Drive.  We are truly grateful.

We especially want to thank the following area businesses and individuals who matched member contributions with gifts of $1000 or more:

William H. Thie Fund

H.R. LaBar Family Foundation

Django Western Taco

Cohen Recycling

Murphy's Pub

The Sleep Doctor - Dr. Steve Billman

John & Terri Byczkowski

The Financial Network Group

Cooney, Faulkner, & Stevens

Red River Gorge Cabin Rentals

Karen & Tom Kruer

Thanks also to the area businesses that provided us with food and drinks during our open houses:

Dillman Foods of Middletown, OH

Buona Vita Pizzeria of Dayton, KY

Mio's Pizzeria of Mt. Washington, OH

McCabe's Granola

Bill's Donut Shop of Centerville, OH

And finally, a very special thanks to all of the bands and musicians that graced the WNKU studio during our inaugural Live Drive. ..

We are so grateful of your time.  You kept our spirits high and our phones ringing!

As of this writing, we are just $16,000 short of our overall goal of $180,000.  That's pretty good, and with the help of a few folks who just didn't get around to it in the last couple of weeks, we'll get there.  If you didn't get around to it, your pledge today would be greatly appreciated.

Now once again, please "Thank You" by The Redwalls.  It's about a girl, sure, but it's a great song and the message is the same.
