Our thanks to the 2,400 listeners who supported WCQS this fall, helping us exceed our goal, raising more than $257,000. Every dollar pledged to WCQS helps us stay a strong, independent source for news, music and entertainment in Western North Carolina. Every dollar pledged during the drive is also being matched by Eblen Charities to provide heating assistance to people in need this winter.
Please join us in welcoming almost 500 new members to the WCQS family. Big thanks to those of you who threatened turn in your friends, co-workers and family members to Ira Glass if they didn't support WCQS! And big thanks to those of you who proudly tweeted, facebooked and otherwise touted your support of WCQS.
If you didn't have a chance to make your contribution, you can do so right now.
Congratulations to our iPad winners: Lynn Dunn of Fletcher, Peter & Sarah Hatton of Sylva, Mylan Sessions of Clyde, Jerry Plotkin of Arden, Katherine Camp of Candler, and Peter Huff Rouselle, Edward Schwartzman, Cynthia Ho and Joanne & Milt Crotts - all of Asheville.
