Radiothon A Smashing Success

Volunteers from Tops Friendly MarketsThe Annual Drive for Miracles Radiothon to benefit Golisano Children's Hospital raised an astounding $197, 500 on February 9 and 10th. Once again WHAM 1180 and 100.5 The Drive, along with 13WHAM-TV joined forces to broadcast from the Strong Memorial Hospital lobby, sharing stories from our inspiring children and families.

Wisteria Flowers & Gifts, a long-time Golisano Children’s Hospital partner, donated colorful floral arrangements that were delivered right to patients’ bed sides as donors made monthly miracle maker pledges. A huge thank you to The Drive’s Julie DePasquale, J.P. Hastings, Bill Moran, Mayor Pete Kennedy, and Scott Brooks; WHAM’s Bob Lonsberry, Pauly Guglielmo, and Deanna King; and 13WHAM’s Jennifer Johnson. We are so grateful for your continued support!
