CFRU 93.3fm is gearing up for its annual “Raise Your Voice!” fundraising drive, taking place October 19 – 26. Listen in and look for us all week long, broadcasting live from various locations downtown. Drop by and donate what you can. Who knows: maybe you’ll get a chance to be on the air, too!
We hope to raise money to support our station’s continuing involvement in the
Guelph community, including purchasing technology and equipment that will allow
us to do more remote broadcasting and interviewing, and creating a speakers’
corner and concert/performance series.
This year, everyone that donates $25 or more will receive a “Key to the Station” USB drive, featuring the “best of” CFRU from 2011/2012. Four megabytes of your favourite CFRU shows - all on one hard drive, right at your fingertips! See the prize list on the right for more great giveaways.
Call (519) 837-2378!
