Radiothon collects more than $155,000
Partners in Hope will give $20 a month for 12 months to end up with a total of $240, and fishbowls were set up on tables for people to drop bills or cash into. Also, area residents had the opportunity to purchase paper hearts to support the children’s hospital.
“It’s for a worthy cause,” Raley said. “The community has always been good, but it’s astonishing how much they do support.”
Mary Poe, the public service director for the Radio Center, said the center’s stations, Z-107.5 FM, The Peach 99.3 FM and ESPN 97.7 FM, broadcast appeals for donations.
