The winner of this giveaway is Matthew Warner! Congratulations! His name was selected at random for the giveaway. From Matthew:
I usually listen to NPR in my car just because it always has news I'm interested in, and music to discover. I really like world music, and jazz - I listen to NPR quite a bit. I'm really excited to win these tickets!
Today (April 3rd) during Morning Edition, an anonymous family foundation will MATCH your donation! The foundation will give WCBE 1 dollar for every dollar you pledge IF we're able to reach our fundraising goal of $5,000 before 9am.
That means $50 turns into $100; $100 turns into $200. We have a limited number of matching offers throughout the drive, so if you're considering a donation to WCBE don't wait! Your donation this morning will help us earn an extra $5,000 - that's an additional dollar for each dollar given to WCBE over the next two hours!
