Sunny 95’s Radiothon for Nationwide Children’s Hospital: 2020 Program Summary

In 2020, it’s 34th year, the Sunny 95 Radiothon for Nationwide Children’s Hospital raised a
total of $186,561 for our very own Sunshine Fund.

The Sunshine Fund is used wherever it is most needed by the Columbus hospital. Funds from this Radiothon have been used to support nearly every area of the campus. From covering the cost of diapers in the NICU, to providing funding for therapies in Rehab, to life-saving research and covering the bill for families who could not afford to pay—every dollar contributed through the Radiothon goes directly to providing the highest quality of care for the patients and families treated at Nationwide Children’s Hospital – staying LOCAL, LOCAL, LOCAL.

In a year like never before, central Ohio showed up like never before!  Thanks to our incredible listener & sponsor support, we were able to raise this amount of money to provide the highest quality of care to every child who walks through the doors at Nationwide Children’s, regardless of their ability to pay.

We are so appreciative and thank our brave families who shared their stories of strength, hope and resilience.  They inspire us all!  Here’s a note we received from one of our patient families:

Hi Megan, Amanda, and Greg,

 Oh my goodness!  We just heard our story on-air as Bridgette was eating breakfast!  It’s beautiful. The song and words you put together.  It took a leap of faith for me to do this and trust someone else with our words.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It sounds beautiful and she’s beaming.  You are showing her darkness turns to sunshine.

 Fondly,

Mandy and Bridgette

 

And to our sponsors—we couldn’t have done it without them!   Tim Hortons, KEMBA Financial Credit Union, The Eco Plumbers, Penn Station East Coast Subs, Roosters, Take 5 Oil Change, and CalebCares4Kids.
