KVAK CAKE AUCTION A HUGE SUCCESS
Each year during Frosty Fever, KVAK hosts a live cake auction to benefit a good cause. From 2008 to 2016, KVAK has helped various charities raise a whopping total of $23,279.50. This year’s auction raised $3,510 to benefit the Community Playground fund. Special thanks to HHES PTA and bakers for their donation of time and talents. All proceeds from the auction go to the chosen cause each year and KVAK covers the cost of staff time and airtime to make it a success.
