CMN Radiothon at Children’s Village Proves Yakima Believes in Miracles [PHOTOS]
With News Talk KIT's Morning News crew, Dave and Lance, playing hosts, the 2019 Children's Miracle Network Radiothon pulled off another miracle at Children's Village, raising $46,800 in seven hours Friday.
More than 20 volunteers manned the phone banks, celebrating donations of $100 by ringing the cowbells they kept at the ready on their table. Phrase of the day: "More cowbell!"
The "One Call, One Miracle" radiothon, presented by your local Ace Hardware stores, supports services at Children’s Village and Virginia Mason Memorial’s neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric unit and The Family Birthplace.
And Friday morning, as the community heard the inspirational stories of local patients, parents and staff at the hospital, donors dug deep. The tally as of Friday afternoon fell just shy of this year's $50,000 goal, but donations will still be accepted if you text “VMMKIDS” to 51555 in the next few days.
