It was during 4th Quarter 2014, the WBFF launched its 28th Annual Champions of Courage Black History Month Essay Competition. 3000+ essays were received and in December 20 students video taped their salutes to their Champions who have shared with them the lessons and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In November, WBFF partnered with Regal Cinemas for the premiere of their new theatres at Laurel Town Center. Our Charity Day promotion benefited Fisher House which provides housing for military families as they undergo medical treatment. The event raised $6500 for Fisher House. In addition to the broadcast of programming, the station produced and aired PSAs for local organizations including, Junior Achievement, My Little World Music, Dance and BMore, Boy Scouts, and many small cultural, scholastic and religious organizations hosting programs and events designed for children.
