PHOENIX — Arizonans once again generously emptied their pockets for a good cause, this time in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 12th annual Give-A-Thon for Phoenix Children’s Hospital raised a record-setting $1.9 million throughout the week through efforts with KTAR News 92.3 FM and 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.

The Give-A-Thon for PCH also maintained its position as the top children’s hospital radio fundraiser in the country.

Since 2009, the event has raised more than $16.5 million.

“We cannot thank KTAR, Arizona Sports and the local community enough for their generous support,” said Steve Schnall, Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer.

“Even though the pandemic has impacted our patient families, the Give-A-Thon is an important reminder that when we put out the call, the community will step up and make sure kids get the top notch healthcare they need.”

Give-A-Thon sponsors included presenting sponsor Valley Hyundai Dealers, Carl’s Jr., The UPS Store, ACE Hardware, Trane and Aflac.

$1.9 million in this unprecedented environment is just incredible,” said Scott Sutherland, senior vice president and market manager of Bonneville Phoenix. “We strive to build up, inform, connect and celebrate our community, and there isn’t a better example of doing that than the Give-A-Thon for Phoenix Children’s.

“A big thank you to our loyal audiences, along with our sponsors and partners, who helped make year’s event one that we will forever cherish.”

All donations made during the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Give-A-Thon go towards funding cutting-edge research, clinical programs, state-of-the-art equipment and family-friendly services that help ensure that the hospital can provide world-class care to each and every child that needs it.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital is one of the largest children’s hospitals in the nation with 433 beds.
