Radio Raises $450K For Kids With Cancer
Listeners to radio stations across the country participated in the fifth annual Promesa y Esperanza® (Promise and Hope) radio event on October 4-5, raising over $450,000 to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. During the two-day broadcast event, listeners in cities like Philadelphia, Charlotte, Boston, Providence, Minneapolis, and Kansas City, supported the fight against childhood cancer and other deadly diseases by making a donation.
The Davidson Media Group affiliate and participating independent stations transmitted approximately 30 hours of programming to raise funds so that no patient family ever pays St. Jude for anything. The donations will help cover the cost of treatment, travel, lodging, food and services such as schooling and rehabilitation to help improve the quality of life for patients and their families at St. Jude.
