Go behind the scenes at amazing Phoenix Children’s Hospital
PHOENIX – As they do every year, KTAR News 92.3 FM and 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station are teaming up this week to raise money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the Phoenix sister stations will be dedicating broadcast time to the Give-A-Thon, which raises money for this amazing facility.
The stations have raised more than $10 million for Phoenix Children’s Hospital in nine years of the event.
More than 60 of of the hospital’s programs are funded either entirely or in part through philanthropic efforts like the Give-A-Thon.
Here is a behind-the-scenes look at five programs that help make the facility such an important part of the community:
