interactive function calls

I have this in my .emacs

(define-key mode-specific-map [?F] 'fortune-from-region)

The problem is that in the code for fortune-append we see something

|     (unless interactive
|       (save-buffer)
|       (if fortune-always-compile
|         (fortune-compile file)))))

Following a chat on #emacs on irc, I tried creating my own rgrfortune
function which was then called from the key binding and then I was told
it would call 'fortune-from-region "non interactively" - but this did not
work e.g

| (defun rgrfortune()
|   (fortune-from-region (region-beginning) (region-end) fortune-file))
| (define-key mode-specific-map [?F] (lambda()(interactive)(rgrfortune)))

The reason I want it called "non interactive" is simply that thats
the way to save and compile the fortune file as the fortune-append
snippet above shows.

How to do it?
