From sunrise to sundown on September 15, NBC Charlotte viewers and hospital supporters from across the greater Charlotte region watched heartwarming stories of patients, families, and caregivers at Levine Children’s Hospital. The 18-hour fundraising broadcast, made possible by Presenting Sponsor Morris-Jenkins, and many other generous community partners, highlighted the world-class care patients receive at Levine Children’s Hospital in Nephrology, Cardiology/Cardiac Surgery, Pediatric Cancer, Rehabilitation, and Neonatology, among other specialties.
Viewers met patients of all ages, like Katie Webb (shown left), who has been treated in multiple pediatric specialties since birth and was recently named the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital Ambassador for the state of North Carolina. Read Katie’s story here.
With the help of Presenting Sponsor, Morris-Jenkins, and generous contributions from many donors and community sponsors, the Give Here For Kids Here Telethon raised over $137,000. We are grateful to everyone who made the Give Here For Kids Here Telethon an outstanding success.
Special thanks goes to Telethon Sponsors: ECM Solutions, Huntington Learning Center, Miller Street Dance Company, 5Church, and Nest. We also thank Larry Sprinkle, Fred Shropshire, Colleen Odegaard, Beth Troutman, Rachel Rollar (and special guest anchor Sonja Gantt) and the entire NBC Charlotte Team for producing an inspiring broadcast in support of Levine Children’s Hospital.
