94.9 The Point Broadcasts “Radiothon” to Benefit CHKD
HAMPTON ROADS, Va.—Radio station 94.9 The Point (WPTE FM 94.9) will conduct a four-day “Radiothon,” the station’s annual marathon broadcast to benefit Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, from 5:30 a.m. Thursday, November 13, until 5 p.m., Sunday, November 16.
Point listeners will hear amazing stories of CHKD patients who have overcome insurmountable odds to beat life-threatening illnesses and stories from those who have survived tragic events, such as car accident and household mishaps.
The live broadcast will originate from the lobby of CHKD and will feature “Chuck and Jenna”, hosts of the “Morning Point” show. All money raised at this year’s Radiothon will be used to purchase equipment, fund research and provide patient care programs at Children’s Hospital.
Listeners can phone in pledges during the Radiothon by calling (757) 668-9000 or toll free 1-866-580-5437. Online donations
will also be accepted.
