FAIRBURY- Ol Red 99-5’s Country Cares for St. Jude radiothon raised $65,536 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The record-setting event encouraged radio listeners to pledge $20 per month to become “Partners In Hope” with St. Jude.
Also, more than 80 country artists supported the St. Jude “This Shirt Saves Lives” campaign in addition to the radiothon. The social media push and on-air promotion through Country Cares radio attracted new Partners in Hope and sustaining donors in support of the life-saving research and treatment being done at St. Jude. Artist and donor social posts can be viewed at www.thisshirtsaveslives.org.
Ol Red 99-5 thanks our wonderful listeners for all their support for the kids of St. Jude.
