Family Life Radio/Tucson (FLR) surpassed their goal by 125% for their year-end on air fundraiser held last week.

“We are blown away by our listeners and their generosity. It was especially exciting to see the outpouring of support that came from our newest station in Detroit. Many people who were listening to the station when it was a Country format continued tuning in even after Family Life Radio came on,” said Mike Kankelfritz, FLR’s Chief Broadcast Engagement Officer.

The FLR on air hosts worked with the team from Vidare Creative: Jeff Scott, Dave Kirby, Bill Scott and John Brock. “The team at FLR works so hard all year long to connect with their audience and bring them content that changes lives. I see it in the way the listeners respond during their fundraiser. Vidare Creative is so proud to work with them,” said Dave Kirby, Chief Creative Officer for Vidare Creative.

WWIL/Wilmington (Life 90.5) recently ended their Year End Fundraiser at over 110% of the event goal, which also represented a 10% jump over last year’s fundraiser.

Director of Fundraising Samantha Wall says, “We reached 110% of our goal because the team gives 110% effort, not only during fundraising events but every day of the year. We are so blessed to have the best of the best on our team. Even in a small market, God still moves in amazing ways!”

“It’s been a great year for Life 90.5 as they invest in their community. The steady growth is a testament to the hard work and love they have for their listeners,” says Garrett Michaels, Director of Radio Fundraising for Vidare Creative.
