On Thursday, December 12th and Friday, December 13th, WIVK partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon.
With the generous donations of listeners across East Tennessee, WIVK was able to raise $341,957 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in just two days. The amount of $341,957 is the largest amount of money ever raised for St. Jude by WIVK and East Tennessee during a two-day radiothon. The donations received during the St. Jude Radiothon go directly to St. Jude in helping them fight childhood cancer and continuing to lead the way in cancer research.
WIVK teamed up with Dollywood to offer a pair of free Dollywood tickets to each new Partner in Hope during the Radiothon. Local restaurants Ham ‘N Goodys, Hooters, Dead End BBQ & Longhorn Steakhouse generously offered food for phone bank volunteers throughout the day.
WIVK is proud to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the annual Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon and is ecstatic that 2019 was our biggest fundraiser yet. We’re looking forward to an even bigger 2020!
