Pledges help raise over $200,000 for CJSW

Carrie and Stefan man the phones during funding drive.

 CJSW 90.9fm's annual funding drive took place all last week.  The staff and management of the station as well as the entire CalgarySoca team would lilke to thank everyone that pledged this year. On Wednesday October 24th 2012 from 6-7pm listeners helped raise close to $1000 to help keep the station running.  This year's station goal was $200,000 for the week long fund raising efforts.  The final tally for all the shows combined being an estimated $211,000 raised!

The money annually goes towards the licensing, maintenance and equipment needed for the nearly 200 volunteers, programmers, and staff to create the radio magic that is CJSW.   This year's funding drive efforts will also go towards an even more powerful transmitter to reach an even greater portion of the province.  (Read more about the purpose of this year's funding drive, HERE)

Thank you again for all your efforts, especially during the CARNIVAL MIX to show your Soca support.
