US 103.5 Cares for Kids Sixth Annual Radiothon Raises $198,636 for All Children's Hospital
Dec. 6, 2013 (St. Petersburg, FL) Tampa Bay's best country radio station once again has stepped up for the region's premiere children's hospital.
"The US 103.5 Radiothon gives us a way to tell our stories to so many people in West Central Florida and show that all we do is for kids," said Jenine Rabin, Executive Vice President of the All Children's Hospital Foundation. "Thank you to our donors who stepped up to make a difference for kids' health."
"Helping to support the many charities and non-profits in our local communities is an ongoing priority and commitment for Clear Channel, said Sam Nein, Market President, Clear Channel Media + Entertainment. "Working to help support All Children's Hospital is one of the most worthwhile endeavors we do throughout the year."
Children are the sole focus of All Children's Hospital and its million-square-foot St. Petersburg FL campus devoted to pediatric specialty care. The ten-story, 259-bed All Children's Hospital and its adjacent Outpatient Care Center (dedicated in January 2010) replaced an existing 42-year old facility just two blocks away.
All Children's Hospital is a proud member of Johns Hopkins Medicine. All Children's is the only US hospital outside of the Baltimore/Washington D.C. metroplex to achieve that distinction. It is also the only hospital on Florida's West Coast totally devoted to children's care - a leader in pediatric treatment, education, research and advocacy. As a regional referral center for children with some of the most challenging medical problems, All Children's draws patients from throughout Florida, all 50 states and 36 foreign countries. The mission of this private, not-for-profit hospital is rooted in its beginnings in 1926 as Florida's first Crippled Children's Hospital for polio victims. All Children's understands that it's not enough to treat disease -- that true progress comes from teaching and research to cure disease. All Children's shares its pediatric expertise through research & education affiliations with 70 different institutions including Johns Hopkins Medicine, the University of South Florida (USF Health) as well as Moffitt Cancer Center, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
