The theme for this year is Ruby Jubilee, chosen to celebrate the station’s 80th year serving the community. The events slogan, Making Milestones represents how far the station has come, and the goals still left to achieve in order to propel the station in today’s media landscape.
Fundrive proceeds go directly towards the research and development needed to create future milestones. They’ll go towards operating expenses, equipment purchases, studio upgrades, new programs and support for community projects and events.
