Radiothon raises thousands in Canberra
The annual 2CC Radiothon for Ronald McDonald House Canberra raised a total that well exceeded all expectations.
By 6pm yesterday the Radiothon raised $43 838.45 in cash and services for the house at the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children.
Listeners, local identities, businesses and the ACT Government donated generously in just over 12 hours in a busy day of fundraising.
2CC General Manager Michael Jones says “the generosity of Canberran’s in supporting the staff and volunteers at Ronald McDonald House is inspirational. As a parent myself, the importance of RMHC to families in our region cannot be understated”.
Michelle McCormack Executive Officer for the House stated she continues to be amazed by the generosity of the local community, “people understand what the House is about and how vital it is, especially what is provides to families who are experiencing something they hadn’t thought would ever happen to them”.
Yesterday’s Radiothon was the 6th appeal held by 2CC.
