Keep on ringing those phones Saskatchewan, as the 2022 Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Radiothon presented by CIBC Wood Gundy continues into its second day.
Once again, the goal is to raise money towards helping sick kids all across Saskatchewan and the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“The phones have been picking up. We're hoping they pick up a little bit more but it's a great start to day one of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Radiothon,” said Kristina Konchak with the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The funds raised from this year’s radiothon will go towards advancing equipment for innovative surgeries, increasing the capacity of care for scoliosis patients and lifesaving therapy for acute kidney patients.
So far, the radiothon has received a few large donations.
“We have had several donations of $1,000 come in, lots of people actually signing up to be a Sunshine Maker with our Sunshine Maker Club, getting in to win those prizes for a set of Air Canada tickets and a prize package for the Sunshine Maker Club,” said Konchak.
As a reminder, all donations will be matched by Gord and Barb Broda up to $150,000.
The 2022 Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Radiothon presented by CIBC Wood Gundy will be live on the radio until 5:00 p.m. tonight.
Those who want to donate to the foundation can do so by calling 1-888-808-KIDS (5437), or online at pattisonchildrens.ca.
Since the very first Radiothon, 20 years ago, over $14.5 million has been raised for Saskatchewan moms and kids in hospital.
