January 01, 2003 | Barry Draggoo

Southwest Washington’s Christian radio station, 90.5 KACS, raised a record $91,000 in faith promises during its recent Sharathon. Hosts Loren Olson, left, broadcast director for LifeTalk Radio and original KACS general manager; Steven Vistaunet, North Pacific Union Conference communication director; and Lee McIntyre, lay pastor for Outreach at Riverside Community Church in southern California, praised God for bountiful blessings, with KACS general manager Chris Carey.

Phil White, Washington Conference communication director, joined the Sharathon team for one day, with many other volunteers, who helped the Sharathon succeed by answering phones, entering data, and making food for the three-day, live broadcast.

Broadcasting in the Olympia, Centralia and Chehalis, Wash., area, KACS is the area’s only local Christian music station and is active in the community as the host of frequent family concerts, family skate nights, and other activities.
