One of my favorite events to listen to is just a week away, the Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothon is next Thursday, Friday and Saturday October 19, 20 and 21. Dave Kennedy will hold down the microphone, live from the lobby at Gundersen. I love listening… sometimes the stories are very emotional, occasionally sad, but almost always with a happy ending. A lot of my friends listen too, and I always get the same question- “does the money raised really stay local?” My answer is always the same… “Yes it does”. I’ve been involved with CMNH for many years, I’ve seen so many kids, talked to so many families, and met many CMHN Heroes. Plus I’ve worked with several CMNH staffers and without a doubt in my mind I know how great and necessary CMNH is for these families. The financial and emotional support that CMNH provides is the reason this will always be my favorite charity. I hope you will listen, and give next Thursday through Saturday on Eagle 102.7! Keith A.
