Keep Our Radio Station Alive Fundraiser
May 11 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
During the June 2016 Erskine Fire, the transmitter site for the local FM radio stations were destroyed. The equipment loss was around $150,000. The owners of the radio station at the time did not want to pay to replace the equipment, so the local management decided to take out a loan to get them up and going again. They have since purchased the stations from the previous owners and are attempting to get the stations back to the signal level the Valley had before the fire. In the meantime, the tower site was rebuilt, but the rent for space on the tower and inside the building was nearly doubled by the tower owners in Bakersfield. With the equipment the new owners have acquired along the way, it is estimated that another $50,000 will be needed to complete the project.
Please join us for a fun filled evening to raise money for the tower upgrades on Saturday, May 11, 2019, at 5 p.m. from 9 p.m.
Buffet dinner catered by Star Lite Lounge. Dancing to the Kern River Band. Drawing prizes, live auction with amazing art, antiques and much more.
