Clear Channel Raises Over $1 Million For Kids
Clear Channel Communities, the community engagement brand of Clear Channel, and 106.1 KISS-FM (KBKS) in Seattle raised $1,009,271.52 for Seattle Children’s Hospital during its 12th annual “Jackie and Bender’s One Big KISS for Seattle Children’s Hospital Radiothon.” Hospital Board Member Michele Smith said, “It’s truly incredible that Jackie and Bender’s compassion for Seattle Children’s inspires so many to give generously and has for 12 years."
106.1 KISS FM hosts Jackie and Bender broadcasted the stories of Children’s patients, families, staff, and volunteers to listeners across the region, who responded with generous donations and helped 106.1 KISS FM reach the 2013 goal of $1 million. Throughout the two-day radiothon, fans were encouraged to donate online, via text, and in an online auction as well as by joining the KISS for Kids Club, which allows listeners to sign up to make a monthly donation. Online donations will be accepted through the weekend at www.KISSFMSEATTLE.com. Listeners can also make a $10 donation by texting the word CARE to 50555.
