Albany -- An advertising campaign to raise money and awareness for the Flint Riverquarium did both. The Flint Riverquarium had it's second highest attendance Sunday. Eight-hundred-eight people visited within just four hours.

A radio-a-thon raised about $1,900 for the Riverquarium-- at a time the Riverquarium was in danger of shutting down because of financial problems.

CEO Scott Loehr says the awareness raised by radio and TV public service announcements paid off.  "Just to see the place alive with people, young children, parents, grandparents, that's what it's all about."

The Riverquarium celebrated its third birthday Sunday. Dougherty County pledged $250,000 to keep the Riverquarium afloat. City Commissioners pledged $300,000.
