We cannot guarantee when or if your event will be mentioned, as it is subject to time availability and on-air host discretion. PSA’s should be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to an event. Please do not send only a flier or simply a link to a page where we can “find” the information for your event. Submit a short paragraph describing the Who, What, When, Why, How much, and most importantly, what the profits will benefit

BBQ Hoedown and Team Penning for Furniture Share–July 22nd

Furniture Share will be having our 8th Annual Team Penning, Texas Style BBQ & Hoedown & Auction on July 22nd, 2017 from 5pm-8pm to Raise Money for our Beds for Kids program. At Furniture Share we strive to provide tools for children to succeed in life and help end the cycle of poverty. We believe a bed is a crucial  tool in achieving this because children who have the ability to get a good night’s sleep are more  likely to do better in school, and complete their education thus helping them break the cycle of poverty. Come join us at the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo (502 S 13th St, Philomath, OR 97370)  for a fun night of live music, BBQ, silent and live auction, and a raffle all while helping support a great cause. Tickets to this event cost $20. To find out more about our organization visit our website http://furnitureshare.org/ or call us at (541)754-9511.
