On November 17, Cumulus Media’s WDVD-FM (Detroit) held a day-long radiothon to benefit all Beaumont Hospital’s Children patients through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The hospital provides advanced care for thousands of children from Southeast Michigan and beyond.
WDVD’s Blain Fowler, from the Blaine Fowler Morning Show, along with the entire station airstaff broadcast live from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The event raised $100,000, benefiting 140,000 children. Margaret Cooney Casey, Chief Development Officer for Beaumont Health said, “This year’s 96.3 WDVD Cares for Kids Radiothon was a great success as listeners from our radio partner reached out to help the families in our community that rely on Beaumont Children’s for programs and services. Not only were we fortunate to have both patient families talk about the great care they received, but a number of major donors joined us as well to talk about why them made significant investments in programs impacting the metro Detroit community.”
