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

The 13th annual Give-A-Thon for Phoenix Children’s raised more than $1.8 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 Phoenix Children’s also maintained its position as the top children’s hospital radio fundraiser in the country.

Since 2009, the event has raised more than $18.3 million.

“We are so grateful for the support of KTAR, Arizona’s Sports Station and the local community,” Steve Schnall, Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation’s senior vice president and chief development officer, said.

“Kids can’t wait and the KTAR 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, Desert Financial Credit Union and Aflac.

“This is really an event of inspiration for everyone involved at the stations and we are honored to be part of such a signature fundraiser for Phoenix Children’s,” Scott Sutherland, senior vice president and market manager of Bonneville Phoenix, said. “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 this year’s event one that we will never forget.”

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