Alice 105.9 Cares for Kids Radiothon raises $1.4 million for Children’s Hospital Colorado

Listeners of Denver’s Alice 105.9 (KALC-FM) have come through yet again, giving our Colorado community over one million reasons to be grateful.

The two-day, 24-hour marathon broadcast has come to a close, with $1,400,000 being raised by generous listeners and fans of the Entercom Communications radio station, alongside on-site donors at the event including volunteers and Children’s Hospital Colorado employees.

The 19th Annual Alice Cares for Kids Radiothon was another amazing success.  This year’s $1.4 million donated will be designated to Children’s Colorado’s Children’s Fund, which is allocated to the hospital’s greatest area of need as determined by executive leadership and medical staff. This includes treatment, equipment, research, family services, and much more.

The talented lineup of Alice 105.9 personalities BJ & Jamie, Carson and Amber, and Slacker & Steve  told stories of hope, healing and inspiration from patients of Children’s Hospital Colorado. Ten families were interviewed live on-air throughout the two days, and dozens more stories were shared among the attendees.

Not only did Alice 105.9’s listeners give so generously, there are many Radiothon sponsors to thank as well: Marriott, Safeway, Tri-State Energy Program, Big O Tires Colorado, Douglas County Libraries, Sam’s ClubMile High HondaComcast, Land Title Guarantee Company, Dion’s, Chick-Fil-A, Charles Schwab Corp Foundation, HighPoint Resources, HomeAdvisor, Mortenson Denver, PipeX, and Province Custom Builders.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Mediathons, Telethons, and Radiothons are broadcasted on over 350 TV and radio stations each year. Stations engage viewers and listeners with inspiring stories of Miracle Children from area communities and ask listeners to call in and pledge support for local kids.
