Paonia, CO (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
The fundraiser took place between December 2-5th as an On-Air radio auction for KVNF Public Radio. The Holiday Auction has happened at KVNF for the past 32 years and is an annual event. This year they implemented online and mobile bidding. Listeners warmly welcomed the change, as they were able to bid online without having to be glued to their radio. The result was a total of $18,838 raised to support general operating expenses at the radio station.
Winspire partnered with the KVNF to provide five exclusive travel packages, one of which was sold for $3,200. The sold package was a [Wine Experience] which included airfare and a hotel stay in Napa Valley and features a hot air balloon ride, wine tastings and a chauffer between wineries.
“I am excited to hear from the winning bidder after they go on their Winspire Experience,” says Underwriting Director Amber McDaniel, “We are now able to offer exciting vacation packages to our listeners without all the headache and hassle. I look forward to including Winspire Experiences in next year’s auction!"
