Fall Fundraising Recap:
WNFR/Sandusky (90.7 Hope FM) & WNFA/Port Huron (Power 88.3) wrapped up their joint Fall fundraiser on Thursday October 14th, and exceeded their goal. The funds raised beyond the goal are being applied to the station’s expansion and outreach development project, as they look to grow their broadcast reach across Michigan.
Station Director, Brian Smith states, “Every fundraising event that I have had the privilege of being a part of has been unique. One thing that is always the same is God provides. He did so last week with an outpouring of generosity from our community. I’m grateful to our amazing team in house and also The Heart share team for another successful event!.”
