94.9 THE POINT RADIOTHON NETS MORE THAN $328,000 FOR CHKD
HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – The 94.9 The Point Radiothon held December 9-12 raised more than $328,000 for Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters.
Morning Point Show DJs Chuck and Jenna hosted the event live from the hospital lobby. Patients past and present and their families recounted their stories about illness or injury and how CHKD has helped them, motivating thousands of listeners throughout Hampton Roads to call in with donations.
Proceeds from the Radiothon directly benefit the region’s only hospital dedicated exclusively to children. The funds will be used to purchase equipment, conduct research and provide patient care programs at Children's Hospital.
