Eric & Kathy Raise $1.45 Million In 14 Hours
If this doesn't convince radio naysayers about the power of the medium nothing will. This past Friday, in just 19 hours, during the 14th Annual Eric and Kathy Radiothon on WTMX in Chicago, an incredible $1.45 Million was raised for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
From 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eric and Kathy broadcast live from the hospital airing stories of heroic children battling critical, or even fatal conditions in hopes of helping other children in need. The money raised at the radiothon will be used locally for pediatric research, patient care, education and advocacy. Since it began in 2000, the Eric and Kathy Radiothon has raised more than $23 million.
With help from companies like Walgreens and Fifth Third Bank, and Chicago sports celebrities like Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook from the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, every dollar raised during the Eric and Kathy Radiothon stays in Chicago and will be used for pediatric research, patient care, education, and advocacy efforts.
