If you’ve been listening to 89.7 NPR News at all this week, you are probably well aware that we are in the middle of our fall pledge drive fundraiser. Pledge drives are an “all hands on deck” type of experience around the station, with a lot of extra hours and late nights for many of the staff, but it’s always exciting and fun.
Right now, when you donate online before the start of our drive, you could win dinner for up to 12 people and beer pairings at Rockmill Brewery in Lancaster.
