A thank you party was held on Thursday, January 15, 2015 for Peoria Public Radio’s underwriters.

The annual event, held this year at Two25 in downtown Peoria,  featured the recognition of long-time underwriters.   Underwriters who have provided corporate support continually in five year increments were recognized with a plaque.

Thank you to the following businesses for their years of continued support:

10 years: Johnny's Italian Steakhouse

5 years: Benson's Automotive Service, Busey Bank, CEFCU,  David Vaughan Investments, Inc., Illinois Eye Center, and State Bank of Speer

The winner of the complimentary underwriting announcements was the Peoria Civic Center as a result of Ashlee Franken's name being drawn.
