WHIF/Palatka (Hope FM) had a successful Spring Sharathon, raising 16% more than the set goal.

WHIF GM Robin Robinson tells HisAir, “One of the donors was 7-year old Annabelle (pictured below), who made sure to tell us she loves the music and talking about Jesus. She brought in $20 of her own money from her piggy bank. She’s just a little younger than the age when her mom first came in and made a donation to Hope FM when she was a child! The two shared their love for the station on the air.”

WSCF/Vero Beach (ChristianFM) just wrapped up their Care-A-Thon fundraiser this past Friday, and the response was nothing short of amazing.  In just 5 days ChristianFM’s listeners reached 100% of the funding target.

Pictured below Brant Hansen, Sherri Lynn, Andy Youso, and others played a vital role in the Care-A-Thon fundraiser last week.
