Dawson City’s community radio station’s annual fundraiser was a success with over $5,000 raised.

As of 9 p.m. on Thursday, CFYT had raised over $5,200, said treasurer Peter Menzies today, adding he expected that figure to grow over the weekend.

From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. yesterday, the radio station held its annual RadioThon fundraiser with food, music and merchandise.

“One of the great things about the event is that it allows us to open our doors and meet our listening public face to face,” Menzies said.

“Of course, we’re looking for support, especially for all the great new things we’re doing, but it’s also a lot of fun.”

The funds raised will go towards the station’s operations, modernization plans and new initiatives this summer.

Studio renovations, including new furniture and an upgraded broadcast console, have already been completed.

A summer school program is currently training volunteers in podcasting and remote broadcasting.
