Colby Co. employees volunteered at the 8th annual Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital Cares for Kids Radiothon on March 7, 2013. Fifteen members of Colby Co.’s staff manned the phone banks and assisted with administrative tasks as the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital Development Team worked to raise funds for the BBCH, a proud member of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The Radiothon was broadcast live on 107.5 Frank FM, 99.9 The Wolf and WGME 13. Colby Co. also sponsored a Power Hour from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in which we matched donations up to $2,500.
The Cares for Kid Radiothon raised $290,687 and 100% of the funds raised during the Radiothon will stay local and support the programs and services at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center. Over the past seven years, the Radiothon has raised $1.2M for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. As Maine’s only children’s hospital, the BBCH has treated more than 55,000 children from all over Maine and Northern New England.
