Ways To Connect

Congratulations to Scott Theurer, Tim Taylor, and Steve Lineback, who all made pledges of support to Utah Public Radio this morning and each won a 2-night stay for 2 at the Shooting Star Drive-in in Escalante, UT!

Jennifer Pemberton spends this time of year watching the forecast closely, not worried about snow or sun or even the particulate count in wheezy Cache Valley. She's on Blossom Watch, checking the National Parks Service webcam on the National Mall in Washington to see if the cherry blossoms on their way, which will mean it's time for hanami.

 

Congratulations to Elizabeth Scott & Ernie Wampler of St. George who made an online pledge yesterday during our Web Pledge Day and won a 2-night stay in Park City valued at $1,100.

On Saturday, March 24, UPR will be giving away 2-night stay packages to the Shooting Star Drive-In in Escalante all day long.

Any and all pledges made between 8:00 - 11:00 a.m. and during A Prairie Home Companion from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. will be entered to win.

Congratulations to Dane Hansen of Providence, UT, who won the drawing for the Core Wellness Package at Green Valley Spa.

Thanks to Dane and to the wonderful folks at Green Valley Spa for helping us kick off our spring pledge drive.

Life is better with Utah Public Radio and UPR is better with you. Hopefully all of our listeners' lives are enhanced by UPR, even without a spa break to St. George.

Get your pledge in today and show your support for Utah Public Radio.

To all of our gift-giving and member-renewing supporters and to our new member listeners, we offer our thanks for a successful Spring Pledge Drive. We raised nearly $80,000 toward our goal of $90,000 and we mean it when we say that every dollar counts.

Special thanks to our lucky grand prize winners who each won a new Apple iPad: Lillian Duran (Millville, UT) and Jack Schmidt (N. Logan, UT).
