CLINTWOOD, Va. – The Dickenson Community Hospital Foundation raised more than $13,000 in its second annual radio auction with WDIC 92.1 FM/ 1430 AM and on WDICRADIO.com on Saturday, Feb. 19. Proceeds from the radio auction will go toward renovation projects at Dickenson Community Hospital. “We were thrilled with the response that we had from both large and small businesses in our area that sponsored this radio auction,” said Donald Baker, DCH Foundation chairman. “People were very generous to give financially or with donated auction items.”
The foundation received about $6,000 in monetary donations and an additional $7,400 from the auction of donated items.
“We had a great time on Saturday; live auctions are always very exciting,” said WDIC Vice President and Station Manager, Shanghai Nickles. “It was fun to watch the foundation members work the phones and the on-air microphone for such a great cause. WDIC was happy to be a part of making it happen.” Formed in 2009, the DCH Foundation includes 30 members from the Dickenson County area.
“We are very encouraged by the radio auction’s fundraising results,” said Mark Vanover, director of operations for DCH. “These funds will go a long way in helping us upgrade equipment and our facility, which will allow us to continue to increase patient satisfaction. We sincerely appreciate the foundation members, businesses, DCH team members and the people in this community who contributed to Saturday’s event. Because of you, we are well on our way toward making our renovations possible.”
