KABF 2013 SUMMER PLEDGE DRIVE PICNIC
Noon. The Bernice Garden. Make a donation.
I don't know about you, but when it comes to fundraisers, if it doesn't involve interminable pledge testimonials, "Celtic Women" DVDs as premiums or endless repeats of weird infomercials, count me out! Just kidding, those things are all terrible and make me hate fundraisers.
But you know what does sound appealing? A picnic, that's what. And you know who's throwing a picnic fundraiser? KABF 88.3-FM, that's who. This Saturday from noon until 7 p.m. or so, you can chill, relax or do some kind of hybrid of chilling and relaxing at Bernice Garden while enjoying food from a variety of food trucks and vendors (including Southern Gourmasian, LePops Ice Lollies, Loblolly Creamery and Roxie's Hot Dogs) and live tunes from the likes of Isaac Alexander, Mandy McBryde, Midwest Caravan, The Smokes and good ol' Sulac. Filmmaker Mike Poe and Gossip guitarist Nathan Howdeshell are going to be "on the 1s and 2s" as they say.
Good times and you can support community radio. Oh, there'll be beer for sale too, just so you know.
