MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- Residents and music lovers alike can help seriously ill children by taking part in 100.7 WHUD Radio's 11th annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothon, supporting Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, on Wednesday through Saturday.
The annual event is a fundraiser for the hospital, which provides children from the region and beyond with life-changing and lifesaving care.
The Radiothon, in its 10th year, will feature WHUD personalities Mike and Kacey, Tom Furci and Andy Bale broadcasting live from the lobby of Maria Fareri Children's Hospital from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. with evening personality Kathy Millar and overnight host Bruce Owens supporting the hospital at the 100.7 WHUD studios. Mike & Kacey will continue their efforts at the hospital Nov. 20 from 5:30 to 10 a.m.
Throughout the broadcast 100.7 WHUD personalities will speak live with Hudson Valley children and families, who will be returning to the hospital to share uplifting and inspiring stories of triumph over significant medical challenges with the help of Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth).
Community partners in advanced children’s healthcare – including 100.7 WHUD, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc., Saw Mill Auto, Tompkins Mahopac Bank, the Page & Otto Marx, Jr. Foundation, Classic Cruisers Car Club and Hot Rods on the Hudson, The Grove at Valhalla Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, All Aboard! Childcare Education Centers, Somers Sports Arena and more – will show their support for the region’s seriously ill and injured children by generously supporting the hospital during the Radiothon.
Additionally, Boy Scout troops, high school sports teams and area families will bring their collected “loot” to the hospital for counting as part of the hospital’s Western-themed, Change Bandits donation program.
The 2014 Radiothon raised more than $250,000 for the hospital, which cares for Hudson Valley children in need of open-heart surgery, brain surgery, cancer treatments, trauma and burn care, organ transplants, advanced neonatal services and other advanced pediatric care.
