ASTORIA — Fort George Brewery has chosen Coast Community Radio as its February Benefit Night recipient. On Tuesday, Feb 26, Fort George will donate 10 percent of all sales upstairs from 4:30 to 10 p.m. and provide that space for the station to fundraise.
It’s an evening of fun, food, drinks and KMUN. There will be a silent auction, raffle and KMUN swag available.
The silent auction is packed with opportunities, including a weekend in Sisters with skiing and eating at local restaurants; a birthday party at the Astoria Armory with pizza, ice cream and toys; and the chance to be a programmer on KMUN — 20 programmers have offered to have the winner on their shows playing music, chatting and maybe sparking your desire to be on this community radio station. Local musicians are offering three lessons for the highest bidder. We will also be offering a vintage turntable along with signed local albums, including by Krist Novoselic and Nirvana!
The raffle prize is a drive up to the radio tower on Megler Mountain, just up from Dismal Nitch in Washington, with Station Manager Graham Nystrom. You will get an inside look at the facility that produces 5,000 watts of great community radio. Lunch will be included.
