Radiothon 2017- September 29th, 2017 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Each year the Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital Foundation, in conjunction with Steele Communications hosts the annual Radiothon that is broadcast over the local radio station, CFSX. All proceeds are in aid of priority medical equipment. The Radiothon has become the largest annual public appeal to raise funds. The event is broadcast over three radio stations in our region (CFCB, CFGN and CFSX), and is hosted by Steele Communications. The actual broadcast requires the assistance of hundreds of volunteers throughout the region as well as Steele Communications staff and the Foundation's Board of Directors. The Radiothon continues to be the major fundraising public appeal for the Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital Foundation. This event usually takes place on the Friday prior to the Thanksgiving Day weekend. This year the Foundation will appeal for donations to purchase a Pyxis Medicine Cabinet at a cost of $142,360; state of the art medical equipment to be placed in the Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital. The broadcast will be held on Friday, September 29th from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the BCJ Tax Centre on West Street. Thank you for your continued support of this fundraising event and helping us meet our equipment needs by calling in your pledge to (709) 643-5555. See you at the Radiothon!
