94.9 The Point to Broadcast Radiothon to Benefit CHKD, Sept. 13-16
HAMPTON ROADS, Va. -- Radio station 94.9 The Point (WPTE FM 94.9) will broadcast a four-day radiothon to benefit Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters Sept. 13-16. Morning Point hosts Chuck, Jenna and Woo Woo will broadcast live from 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 13-14; from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15; and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 16.
This will be the sixth year that Chuck and Jenna take to the airwaves to raise money for CHKD. In an exciting break from tradition, the event will be divided with the first two days live from the hospital lobby and the final two days live from Center Court at Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach.
During all four days of the radiothon, listeners will hear amazing stories of CHKD patients who have overcome great odds to beat illnesses such as cancer and premature birth, and who have survived traumatic events such as car accidents and fires.
All money raised 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 668-9000.
