KXCI volunteers and fans came together on Friday, September 9th from 8:00am to 9:00am for the station's first-ever Power Hour, an attempt to raise at least $10,000 in pledges in one 60-minute period on Your Morning Brew.
The station's supporters did not call in with $10,000... they called in with $11,866 (!!!) making it the single largest hour of fundraising in the station's almost 28 year history. Between calls and web pledges, 105 people made generous gifts.
The Power Hour was the unofficial kick-off celebration of the KXCI Fall Membership Drive at 91.3FM, which begins formally on Tuesday, September 13th.
Between early renewals through direct mail, the renewal of last fall's initial sustaining members, and now the Power Hour, the station has raised more than $37,000 of the fall drive's $110,000 goal, hopefully setting up the station for a successful - and short - on-air campaign this fall.
