They will hold local radiothons February 11-12, 2010 to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
Like most organizations, St. Jude has not been immune to the effects of the economy. Now more than ever, St. Jude needs the support of radio listeners to continue its mission of finding cures and saving children.

Said Larry Patrick, Managing Partner, Patrick Communications: “The 32 Clear Channel stations deserves some thanks and recognition, as do so many country stations around the country, who conduct radiothons for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. County Cares for St. Jude is an amazing program that won a Service to America Award from the NAB a year or so ago. It has raised well over $365.0 million for the hospital in the past 21 years. Perhaps those who are quick to criticize CC should take a moment to say thanks for their efforts to save the lives of children facing catastrophic diseases.”
