Radiothon raises $170,000 for Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital

The Upstate Foundation’s Radiothon for Kids raised $170,000 in two days of fundraising, thanks to more than 950 community donations. The radiothon was held Feb. 24 and 25.

Since the pandemic began two years ago, the Radiothon has raised more than $450,000.

“It’s heartwarming to know that the Central New York community has rallied to support sick and injured children during this time,” said Toni Gary, assistant vice president for development at the Upstate Foundation. “The Upstate Foundation is grateful for the support it receives each year for this special event.”

Funds raised this year will be used primarily for unmet needs like meals and gas cards for families with hospitalized children, car seats when needed, and items for the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital Child Life Program—iPads, Chrome books, kiddie transport vehicles.

Since Radiothon began in 2003, the event has raised more than $2 million for Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

The Upstate Foundation partnered with iHeart Media and CNY Central for this annual fundraiser.
