When KS95 Morning Show host and longtime SPIRE Credit Union member Crisco (second from left) lost his loyal companion, Babe the black lab, suddenly in late June, SPIRE teamed up with the radio station and local animal rescue Secondhand Hounds to support dogs in need in Babe’s memory. On July 1, Dan Stoltz (left), president/CEO of the $2 billion, Falcon Heights, Minn.-based SPIRE, joined the Minneapolis-St. Paul radio station’s morning show in studio to announce the amount raised for the campaign in just 48 hours – a total of $94,500, which included a $25,000 match from SPIRE. Also pictured are Secondhand Hounds Founder Rachel Mairose (second from right) and KS95 Morning Show Personality Dez.
