Meet the Family! (Awkward Photo Gallery- bottom of page)
Thursday April 18th to Sunday April 28th, we invited you to 'Meet
the Family', with the idea of introducing you to some new CKUA family
members you might not be acquainted with yet. Some of you had a taste of
this when we changed our programming on April Fools' Day, and the
response was accolades all round!
We had some special guests
dropping by to chat on air, including musicians, festival organizers,
and other friends of the family. We were also excited to welcome back our
troops of Fundraiser Volunteers, whose behind-the-scenes work keeps our
fundraiser engine running.
Your donations tell us that CKUA is important to you - and
our hard-working, responsive, and well-informed announcers show you how
important you are to CKUA by providing you with carefully curated
programming you just can't get anywhere else.
Thank you all for celebrating the CKUA Fundraiser/Family Reunion with us!

Double Your Dollars Leadership Donors
Double Your Dollars (DYD), originally an idea from one of our donors in St. Albert, has become a successful cornerstone of our Spring and Fall campaigns. Donors provide us with a pool of DYD-designated dollars. Then during the campaign, we announce a "DYD Hour" - and any new donations made during that hour are matched by the existing DYD pool of funds.
DYD Hours are very popular with our listeners, and it is only through the generosity of our Leadership Donors that we can offer this option. We thank them for their support.

Awkward Family Photo Gallery
We've all seen them. We've all laughed at them. Heck, we've all been IN them! Join us each day of our Spring Fundraiser to meet a different new group of CKUA family members... or send us your own Awkward Family photos (nothing incriminating please) and maybe we'll add them to the gallery...
