Everyone who pledges support to WYSU (either as a new member, a renewing member, or with an additional gift) between now and the end of the drive will be entered into a drawing to win a pair of tickets on the Go Ahead Tours 15-day Grand Tour of Italy excursion.

The station will also offer daily prize packages, a new member prize basket, and a Pennsylvania member prize package.

All include an HD Radio.
