The 2015 Christmas is for Children radiothon, which supports Children’s HealthSM, raisedmore than $1 million for the seventh-largest pediatric hospital in the nation.
The annual event, held Dec. 10-11, raised a total of $1,003,236. One hundred percent of the funds raised support programs at Children’s Health. In partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, CBS Radio DFW broadcast live from the hospital on 98.7 KLUV, La GRANDE 107.5 FM and NewsRadio 1080 KRLD. This year, 22 patients and families shared their heartwarming stories via pre-recorded interviews or live appearances with on-air personalities from all three stations.
Brian Purdy, senior vice president and market manager for CBS Radio DFW, said, “Even after all these years of working with the amazing team at Children’s Health on this incredible effort, we continue to be overwhelmed by the response of our listeners. They open their hearts and their wallets with one purpose: To help the next generation of North Texans live life to the fullest. We can’t imagine a better gift.”
