Overland Park, KS – August 4, 2021 – Listeners to Life 88.5 KJNW-FM Kansas City have selected the recipient of a new roof. Lisa Knappenberger of Excelsior Springs, Missouri, received the most votes through the station website enabling her to receive the prize from Christian Brothers Roofing, LLC.
For four-weeks in June and July, listeners were invited to submit a 150-word nomination for area homeowners in need of a new roof. Four Finalists were selected, each receiving a $100 home-improvement gift card. Then, in late July, listeners were asked to vote for their favorite nomination story, with the nominee receiving the most votes receiving the new roof.
Lisa was nominated by her sister-in-law, Linda Knappenberger, sharing, “Lisa had to quit her job to care for her husband who had COPD. He went to the hospital last week and did not pull through this time. Lisa came home from the hospital to her kitchen full of water due to a leak in the roof. She has been hit hard financially by being unable to work.” The winning nomination received 500 more votes than any of the other nominees.
Life 88.5 KJNW-FM Station Manager Dave Gordon says, “All of our entries were powerful, real-life stories of a family in need. Any of the entries, including our four Finalists, could have won the grand prize. We’re so thankful to have Christian Brothers Roofing give so generously to provide this new roof.
The new roof is scheduled to be installed on the winner’s home Friday, August 7, 2021.
