Fall Fund Drive Update - We've Raised 63% of our Goal!

Joe Williams of Big Bend Coffee Roasters joins us for special premiums during Morning Edition (KRTS/Travis Bubenik)

First things: a huge, huge thank you to everyone who's supported us during our Fall Fund Drive.

We've heard from towns and cities across West Texas, across the state and across the country. Every call we get reminds us just why we do this: for the love of community, for the love of community-supported radio.

A very special thanks to Joe Williams and the kind folks at Big Bend Coffee Roasters for their generous special premiums this morning - 6-month coffee subscriptions and tours of their facility in Marfa!

Another huge thanks to Charles Mary Kubricht and Ron Sommers for their generous $1,000 match challenge this morning - we met it in just an hour!

Today's special premiums come from  Taste & See Bakery in Alpine, Kathy Bork's Little Tin Guest House in Alpine, the  Hotel Paisano in Marfa, and  Plaine in Alpine, and the Border Zone UFO Festivalin Presidio - thanks to our local business supporters!

As last check on Tuesday morning, we've raised about 63% of our $50,000 goal! 

That's a hugely encouraging number, but we've got work to do still.

Every listener contribution - matter how small - goes straight back into the costs of programming, paying for NPR shows like Morning Edition and All Things Considered, producing our local and regional news coverage, and most importantly this year -  building our "new home on the range!"
