ENTERCOM Hot AC KALC (ALICE 105.9)/DENVER's "Cares for Kids" radiothon raised $1.3 million for THE CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS benefiting CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO. The two-day radiothon, broadcast live on ALICE 105.9, started at 6a on FEB. 11th and wrapped up at 6p on FRIDAY (2/12).
Staff of CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS and ALICE 105.9 talent were joined by patients and families to present a big check to CHILDREN’S COLORADO. This year’s fundraiser brings the fifteen year total to more than $20.7 million, funds that help to keep CHILDREN’S COLORADO one of the top children’s hospital in the nation.
Over the two days, ALICE 105.9 broke away from regular programming to interview past and present patients of the hospital, play pre-recorded audio montages of inspirational stories and solicit their listeners to give money. Donations big and small were collected and thousands of listeners became “Miracle Makers,” choosing to give a $15 a month recurring gift to the hospital.
