Save the dates, October 11-14, for fun, fundraising and be part of the excitement for Christ and His Church! Many local vibrant parishes, ministries, and organizations will be highlighted during the Holy Family Radio’s Fall Pledge Drive. Tune in to hear your favorite priests, Bishops from both dioceses and other guests you know and love.
Some changes to this Fall’s Pledge Drive (October 11-14)
- Deacon Jim Thorndill will be taking over the hosting responsibilities for this pledge drive.
- Broadcasting from Newman’s Bookshoppe in Kalamazoo for two days of the pledge drive – Tuesday & Thursday (October 11 & 13 respectively) from 7am to 6pm.
- Anthony Gettig will be assisting with updates throughout the day. You may recognize Anthony’s voice as he is a professional voice talent that not only records announcements for Holy Family Radio, but many companies around the US.
- We’ll have fun trivia questions with prizes throughout all four days (no donation required to participate, though donations are appreciated).
- We’ll be continuing our Celebrating 5 years broadcasting the knowledge, love and truth of the Catholic Faith with fun facts and thanks to all of you who helped make Holy Family Radio a reality and going strong in west Michigan.
One of the many things offered during this pledge drive is a Greek Dinner served by Holy Family Radio staff at the home of Deacon Jim and Diane Thorndill. This dinner includes several courses including dessert and cocktails.
