Now in its 16th year, the Give-A-Thon for Phoenix Children’s Hospital is the Hospital’s largest annual fundraiser. Bonneville Media’s two powerhouse stations, KTAR News 92.3 FM and Arizona Sports 98.7 FM will simulcast the event live from Phoenix Children’s Hospital in August 17-18, 2016 . All proceeds will benefit our patients and families. The high-impact event also includes on-air personalities, a phone bank staffed by sponsors and community volunteers, celebrity appearances, and inspirational patient stories.
Popular on-air personalities from the two stations will be on hand to host the event including: KTAR’s Jim Sharpe, Jayme West, Detour Dan Beach, Bruce St. James, Pamela Hughes, Mike Russell, Monica Lindstrom, Mac Watson, Larry Gaydos and; Arizona Sports’ Doug Franz, Ron Wolfley, Paul Calvisi, Dan Bickley, Vince Marotta, Dave Burns and John Gambadoro.
Last year KTAR’s and Arizona Sports’ audience helped set a new record by raising $1,469,269. This also marked the sixth year in a row that Bonneville Media’s two stations have exceeded $1 million in donations in just 19 hours. Listeners were asked to become Champions of Hope by donating $20 a month and having a cuddly teddy bear given to a Phoenix Children’s patient in their name.
