KRCU Breakfast & Spring Pledge Drive

Jun 19, 2013

NPR's Joe Palca speaking at KRCU's 2013 Spring Fundraising Breakfast
The 4th Annual KRCU Breakfast was a huge success with about 90 individuals in attendance.  The event helped KRCU kick off its Spring Pledge Drive with over $4,000 in donations.  NPR Science Correspondent Joe Palca wowed our supporters with stories about overnight stays at the South Pole and flying into the center of a hurricane.  Joe also took time to visit with students and faculty at Southeast Missouri State University before traveling back to Washington D.C.

The Spring Pledge Drive was a major success thanks to our many supporters.  We were able to raise over $40,000 for the station.  KRCU welcomed over 30 new members who made their first donation to the station.  We are growing every year thanks to the dedication of our current and renewing members.  Listen for the opportunity to participate in our next pledge drive starting on October 2nd.
