Thousands of UNIVISION RADIO listeners across the country responded to ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL's annual Hispanic campaign, "Promesa y Esperanza" (Promise and Hope) broadcast on 29 stations in 11 cities on FEBRUARY 8-9 (NET NEWS 2/6). The event generated over 50,000 phone calls and raised more than $8.1 million in cash and pledges to support research and treatment for pediatric cancer and other deadly childhood diseases.
"We are overwhelmed by our audiences' generosity in response to ST. JUDE's message of hope," said UNIVISION RADIO Pres./COO GARY STONE. "Each of our stations seeks to make a real difference in their communities. This nationwide effort on behalf of the children of ST. JUDE is another example of UNIVISION RADIO's commitment to serving our communities across the nation."
