Oakland Children’s Hospital and La Raza radio station team up to raise funds
on October 24, 2011
Families, physicians and volunteers came to Children’s Hospital this weekend in support of the third annual Radiotón Para Nuestros Niños, a fundraiser in partnership with Spanish radio station KRZZ 93.3 LA RAZA.
All the donations raised during the 3-day live “radiothon” will benefit the hospital, which has more than 250,000 patient visits a year. According to a CHO press release, 27 percent of the population served is Latino.
