103.7 lite fm has teamed up with Children's Medical Center and Children's Miracle Network for the last seven years for the annual "Christmas is for Children Radiothon." Since that time, more than $3 million has been raised for the patients treated at Children's.
During the two day live broadcast based inside the hospital, 103.7 lite fm radio personalities conducted personal interviews, shared heart-warming miracle stories, and encouraged listeners to make donations. We are pleased to report that 103.7 lite fm raised an astounding $621,000 during the 2012 Christmas is for Children Radiothon. In its third year, the "Navidad es para los niños" Radiothon on MEGA 107.5 raised an impressive $385,000. During the 2012 English and Spanish Radiothons, a combined record breaking total of $1,006,000 was raised by CBS Radio for Children's.
Thanks to the tremendous generosity of our community, thousands of patients will have the chance to have a brighter tomorrow.
The need still exists, though, and we need support now more than ever. Help us raise even more money this year to support the patients we serve.
Tune into 103.7 lite fm on December 7-8, 2012 and listen to the heartwarming stories of these amazing Children's patients.
