t-shirts, and gift cards were awarded throughout the Radiothon. “You exceeded our expectations and took our vision and ran with it,” said Heidi Darling of the ChickenQue Committee in an e-mail following the Radio- thon. “Your support means so much to our next gen- eration of farmers that need to be educated and mentored as they grow up -- it is a priceless life les- son and makes great lead- ers for our future. Giving urban and rural families

the opportunity to eat and breathe country is beyond priceless,” Darling added in her note to the radio sta- tion.

The annual BBQ fund-

raiser is a time hon- ored tradition in Sonoma County, with 59 years of history. Not only was it a place to eat, but a place for the local community to gather and admire all the hard work Sonoma County 4-Hers had put in through- out the year. 100% of prof- its raised through “virtual ticket” sales and dona- tions will stay in Sonoma County.
