We’re in the final stretch of this historic fundraising drive, #yourklru, and we couldn’t be more inspired by the response we’ve seen from Central Texans to this campaign. You’ve embraced this new way of giving to your only community-supported public television station and for that, we are so very grateful.
Thanks to you, we met yesterday’s $10,000 challenge match from Dr. Steven Ungerleider, putting us over $73,000! But we still have 15 hours until #yourklru ends at midnight tonight and we’ve made it our goal to hit $80,000. If you haven’t had a chance to make your gift in support of #yourklru, now’s the time!
And for a little extra encouragement, we have some great giveaways in store for our final day of #yourklru:
As the home of Austin City Limits, we’re excited to be giving away one pair of tickets to the ACL Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Concert on Thursday, June 28th at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. We’ll be honoring some of ACL’s greatest performers with an all-star lineup of talent!
Interested in the future of Texas? Well, we’re also giving away 2 pairs of passes to The Texas Tribune Festival October 16-18th on the University of Texas campus. Join more than 3,000 attendees and 150 speakers, including House Speaker Joe Straus and University of Texas at Austin President Gregory Fenves. Attendees will take advantage of 50 interactive events, enlightened discussion on 10 programming tracks, award-winning barbecue, networking opportunities, fun receptions and more.
Also, our friends at Alamo Drafthouse Austin are helping to support #yourklru! For every online ticket purchased this weekend to a showing of LOVE & MERCY, they will donate $1 to #yourklru! Even better, your online ticket will enter you into a drawing for 2 tickets to the upcoming Brian Wilson show here in Austin, as well as the CD & DVD from his latest album! Up to 6 patrons can win!
Simply give any amount to #yourklru until midnight tonight and you just might find yourself at one of these great events! Can we count on your support of this transformational fundraising effort as we reach the final stretch of #yourklru?
