WASHINGTON ADVENTIST UNIVERSITY Contemporary Christian WGTS (91.9)/WASHINGTON, DC, listeners -- close to 4,000 of them -- cast a vote of support for the station during the media ministry’s recent FALL FUNDRAISER. Fans of the station enjoyed four days of stories from fellow listeners about how GOD is using the station to help change lives. A pivotal moment of the event was when WASHINGTON REDSKINS QB KIRK COUSINS and a team of anonymous donors put up a match challenge of $41,000 which listeners more than doubled in the course of an hour. WGTS 91.9 finished the fundraising event with 100% of the goal, the largest fundraising event in the station’s history.
Commented station GM KEVIN KRUEGER: "It is always deeply humbling to witness the amazing generosity of WGTS listeners during a FALL FUNDRAISER - this year was incredibly special. The stories of how GOD is blessing and changing lives were rich and deep. We saw a ton of heart in the giving. It wasn't about the money - the giving was a response to GOD's goodness in the lives of our listeners. Thank you to all who support WGTS 91.9 with their prayers and financial gifts. Let's serve WASHINGTON, D.C. together!"
