NORTHWESTERN Christian AC KTIS/MINNEAPOLIS with sponsorship from local MAPLEWOOD TOYOTA recently brought one family together for the first time in 30 years. The "KTIS FAMILY REUNION" asked listeners to explain why they would want to bring their family to the TWIN CITIES for a family reunion weekend. More than 92,000 votes were cast online for the five finalists by KTIS listeners. VALERIE HOAG of ZIMMERMAN, MN was the grand prize winner.
Last weekend KTIS flew in 20 of VALERIE’s family members from TEXAS, COLORADO, ARIZONA and ALASKA. Together with her husband TODD’s family, almost 100 people were in attendance. SPARROW RECORDS artist MATTHEW WEST performed a private concert for the family.
“Separated and put in foster homes as kids, VALERIE longed to see her brothers, sisters, mom and dad again. It had been 30 years and we were glad to help make this dream come true,” said Promotions Director MORGAN WOOD.
