I honestly don't have the vocabulary to express how grateful I am to everyone who help make the the 15th annual 28 Hours of Hope a tremendous success.  The finally tally is $78,232! THANK YOU!

There are so many people to thank. First of all I would like to thank every K99 listener who donated to help A Kid’s Place in Greeley, Namaqua Center in Loveland, and the Child Advocacy Center in Fort Collins. Thank you to every single person at K99 (a special thank you to Adam and Caitlin) who helped and every volunteer.  There are really too many to mention them all.  Thanks to our bosses George and Pete for allowing us to take over the airwaves for 28 Hours.

Thanks to all of our hourly sponsors this year, including Water Valley, Colorado Crude Carriers, PDC Energy, and The Fritzler Maize. Thank you to Shelley who connected us with those sponsors, who were responsible for nearly 1/4 of our overall total.
