Sept. 14, 2004 – If dancing, food, music and free prizes sound like fun, then the territory's public broadcasting television station has just what you're looking for on Wednesday night. WTJX-TV/Channel 12/DT 44 is inviting the public to join the party as they launch their "Give Twelve Campaign" at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15.
The campaign's goal, according to station development officer Yvette deLaubanque, is for each member of the community served by the station to make a donation at least 12 cents from each child, $12 from each adult, $120 from each small business and $1,200 from each large company. And during Wednesday's live taping of "Face To Face", from 8 to 9 p.m., pledges can be made on-air!
In recent months the station has added a half-dozen local programs covering everything from local sports and the "scene" around the territory, to positive school happenings captured on video and a weekly review of all things V.I.
And this new batch of local programming is added onto an already vital lineup of shows that deal with science, space, news, theater, current events and children's themes.
Those who want to party with the WTJX crew, or make their support of the station public, just need to show up to the Hayhpiece Hill studio on Wednesday night beginning at 6:30 p.m.
