On Thursday, May 22, about 200 TPR business members and underwriters turned out for the Salute to Business Supporters at The Veranda. Held annually, the event is an opportunity for Texas Public Radio to show appreciation for the support of the business and non-profit community and allows these partners to network with each other while enjoying great food in a beautiful location.
On May 8th, TPR hosted the Pinnacle Dinner, an event exclusive to Silver Circle members and above.
The dinner took place at the Witte Museum, and featured special guests NPR's David Greene and Tracy Wahl. TPR's Eileen Pace interviewed Greene onstage, and he shared both moving and amusing anecdotes from his career and his life. At the end of the event, TPR CEO Joyce Slocum presented Greene with a cowboy hat as a souvenir of his San Antonio visit.
Scott Raley began volunteering for TPR in 2010. At the time, his budget wouldn't allow for a paid membership, but he wanted to give back to the radio station he valued. Now a full-fledged member, Scott continues to volunteer because he enjoys it so much.
