Would you like to win a brand new sports car? Of course you would! That’s exactly what is up for grabs this year as a part of JOY 94.9’s annual radiothon which launches this Friday.
JOY invites you to ‘Join the JOYride!’ by coming along to its massive radiothon launch and becoming a member of the LGBT radio station between 2-8 June.
Since being granted a full time broadcasting licence back in 2001, JOY continues to play an integral role of advocacy, education, information and of course entertainment. Based in Melbourne Victoria, it is Australia’s only full time licenced queer radio broadcaster – one of few such broadcasters in the world. That’s quite an achievement considering that this 24 hour life line of the community is a volunteer run and not for profit organisation.
Have a look behind the scenes at JOY 94.9 below.
Its main fundraising event of the year, and the integral fund drive that enables the station to survive and grow, radiothon is your chance to support this community life line that supports and entertains you 24hours a day, 365 days a year, nation wide and around the world.
There is plenty more in it for you when becoming a member, aside from feeling great about your donation going directly into the continuation of this tremendous community broadcaster. You’ll receive member discounts and special offers from a variety of supporting business and sponsors across Melbourne, as well as member only invites to station events, and regular station and program information. Only members are eligible to win movie passes, concert tickets, theatre tickets, CDs, books, t-shirts and other prizes given away everyday on the station all year round, as well as during radiothon.
Speaking of winning prizes, everyone who becomes a member during the 2012 radiothon From June 2 through June 8, goes in the running to win the stations biggest and most fabulous giveaway ever, a Jeep Wrangle Sport (2 Door) worth over than $35,000!
