The LeeShore Center is very grateful for the generous community support during our 24th KSRM Radiothon fundraiser on September 10th. Cash and in-kind contributions pledged during Radiothon are used to support the agency’s services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Although we still have contributions coming in, total cash and in-kind donated to date is $15,737.
The success of our fundraising event was made possible by the hard work of many individuals who graciously gave of their time and energy to help. While we were on-air at KSRM providing information and education on domestic violence, sexual assault and LeeShore services, volunteer remote teams and LeeShore board members were busy in the community collecting donations and pledges. Our sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to all those who helped make our fundraising efforts such a success: Jennifer Joanis, Dorothy Gray, Jan Daniels, Linda Swanson, Patti See, and the Kenai River Brown Bears – Ansel Duesenberg, Dylan Meier, Zack Zulkanycz, Matt Seidel, Lucas Kohls, Chris Nuth, Bryan Hodges, Carson Vance, Jake Davidson, Sean Healy, Judd Loewenstein, Austin Arnold, General Manager Nate Kiel, and Coach Kyle Bailey. Thank you to LeeShore staff Barbara Waters, Kathy Tomrdle, Darla Rosing, and Jennette Browning for your hard work copying and distributing posters, manning phone lines at KSRM and taking pledges.
Our special thanks to those who participated as Radiothon guest speakers: Governor Sean Parnell, Lt. Dave Ross (KPD), Capt. Andrew Greenstreet (AST), Sgt. Duane Kant (SPD), Tina Herford (United Way) and Ann Strongheart.
Thanks also to our on-air host Peter Micciche, KSRM General Manger Matt Wilson for donating use of the KSRM facility and air time, and Dr. Steve Hileman for his Radiothon poster artwork contribution.
On behalf of our board of directors and staff, thank you all! We appreciate the generosity of businesses and community members in our local area. Thanks for supporting our efforts to end domestic violence and sexual assault in the central peninsula.
