HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – The 94.9 The Point Radiothon held December 7-10 raised $386,129 for Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters.

Patients past and present and their families recounted their stories about how CHKD has helped them, motivating thousands of listeners throughout Hampton Roads to call in with donations.
