Radiothon A Smashing Success

Apr. 6, 2017

The Drive for Miracles Radiothon to benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital raised an astounding $197,500 on Feb. 9 and 10.

Radiothon checkOnce again, WHAM1180, 100.5 The Drive, and 13WHAM-TV joined forces to broadcast from the Strong Memorial Hospital lobby, sharing stories from our inspiring children and families. Our thanks to the thousands of people who made donations throughout the two-day event.

Wisteria Flowers and Gifts, a longtime children’s hospital partner, donated colorful floral arrangements that were delivered to patients’ bedsides.

A huge thank you to The Drive’s Julie DePasquale, J.P. Hastings, Bill Moran, Mayor Pete Kennedy, and Scott Brooks; WHAM’s Bob Lonsberry, Pauly Guglielmo, and Deanna King; and 13WHAM’s Jennifer Johnson. We are so grateful for your continued support!

We would also like to thank our families who gave their time to come and support our efforts and share their story of how important the Children’s Hospital is to them. Without the support of our community and events like the Radiothon, the hospital would not be able to provide world-class care in a state-of-the-art facility.
