Radiothon to benefit Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU raises over $643,000
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - After 36 hours of fundraising for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, generous donors set a new record and raised $643,905 to help fund the hospital’s new Wonder Tower.
Last year, $228,000 was raised.
NBC12 partnered with Audacy Radio for its 36 Hours for Kids Radiothon to support children all across the area and the hospital’s new state-of-the-art facility that’s under construction.
The 16-story Wonder Tower will include inpatient and emergency services.
Features include a level-one pediatric trauma center and helipad, 72 private rooms for patients and their families, play spaces, a performance space, and more.
The $400-million project will be finished in 2023.
This couldn’t have been done without the generous donors!
