KEXP is currently running their annual Hood-to-Hood challenge. Ballard won last year, and won its very own Ballard Day hosted by KEXP in return. Here's how it works: donate any amount, big or small, in the name of your chosen neighborhood, and the 'hood with the highest number of donors wins a full day of celebration.

So help Ballard win for our second year in a row: GO TO KEXP.ORG to donate (you can also see an updated count of donations for each neighborhood - we're currently only seven donations behind Capitol Hill!).
