Radiothon proved another big hit for Children’s Memorial
Chicago radio station 101.9 FM, The Mix, once again took to the air in August for the Eighth Annual Eric & Kathy’s 36 Hour Radiothon benefiting Children’s Memorial Hospital. The Radiothon raised over $10,000,000 for the hospital over the previous seven years, and this year brought in $1,753,985.23 in thirty-six hours. Broadcasting live from the Siragusa Lobby of Children’s Memorial, energetic morning personalities shared the moving stories of children, parents, doctors, nurses, and staff in an effort to raise funds for this life-saving institution. Proceeds from the event goes toward pediatric research, patient care, education, and advocacy. Thanks to the determined efforts of the staff at WTMX and the generous pledges of its listeners, the hospital continues to work toward medical advances that can make a difference in the lives of its young patients.
