FAMILY of-Woodstock Receives Sizable Hurricane Donation

The Power of Music Compels You (To Donate). Fundraising continues for upstate families effected by Irene and Lee's lasting devastation. We are happy to see well-intentioned relief efforts from concerned neighbors and caring community organizations like Radio Woodstock. As the flood waters recede from memory some of the hard-hit areas in our Hudson Valley are still picking up the soggy pieces. You can take advantage of  fundraising events that are open to the public such as New Paltz Flood Aid. Mark your calendar for the All-Day concert event at Water Street Market Oct 16th to benefit farmers, families and first responders of New Paltz. Three tiers of ticket sales ($20+) will include Lawn, VIP and VIP+.  Press Release : (Woodstock, NY, October  2011) Radio Woodstock’s president and owner, Gary Chetkof, along with WACBIZ founder and president, Suzanne Hilleary, and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis present a check in the amount of $10,711 to FAMILY of Woodstock’s Executive Director, Michael Berg, for Hurricane Relief and Recovery in the Hudson Valley (see attached photo).
