Idaho Public Television Hits The Mark!

March 22 2005 by Peter Morrill

We are happy to announce FESTIVAL 2005 reached its $900,000 goal, raising $903,219 over 16 days this year. We appreciate the support of our existing members as well as the addition of new members to the IdahoPTV family. This goal was also accomplished with outstanding corporate support and volunteers, who came to answer phones, deliver food, and blow up balloons. Thank you to all!

With the addition of the CABLEONE.NET web challenge, we had an all-time high number of web pledges taking advantage of this wonderful match, with over 560 members joining for the first time, renewing their membership, or giving an additional gift.

Many members also took advantage of the many regional or statewide matches this year and we thank the following:

Lee and Toni Roberts Challenge (statewide new member)
Meldon L. Glen Memorial Challenge (statewide new member > $1000)
Ann Voilleque Challenge (eastern Idaho)
Parkwood Business Properties (northern Idaho)
James and Barbara Cimino Challenge (Wood River Valley)
Jane Oppenheimer Treasure Valley Challenge (Treasure Valley)
Magic Valley Challenge (First Federal, Milestone Developers, Salmon Creek Farms Natural Pork from Falls Brand, Mike and Jan McBride)

With the success of FESTIVAL, we will move toward achieving our $3,000,000 overall goal for Fiscal Year 2005 ending June 30th. Thank you for doing your part to keep the legacy and tradition of IdahoPTV strong. Idaho Public Television truly does belong to you!
