Station board chairman Michael Henderson thanked the City of Wanneroo for its support. The council’s recent donation of $5000 was used to buy a piece of equipment (an Orban 5500 Digital Optimod processor) that enables 89.7 to produce a better sounding signal for listeners.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts congratulated the ECU-based station and its volunteers for its service to the community in Wanneroo, Joondalup and beyond. Bankwest chipped in $1000 to help the station host the event and also pledged the same amount to the North Suburban Community Cricket Association.

Cuan Camilleri won an advertising voucher with the station.
