17th Annual Watertown Radiothon For Kids Breaks $1,000,000!

The 17th Annual Watertown Radiothon For Kids has broken two milestones…this is the first year Alpha Media radio stations New Country KS93, KIXX 96.1 and 96.9 KDLO have raised $100,000.  In addition to this amazing accomplishment, they have now crossed the $1,000,000 mark cumulatively through 17 years of hosting radiothons!

Unreal things happening in Watertown! Our 17th Annual Watertown Radio Radiothon for Kids presented by WinField United…

As the two-day radiothon was nearing its end, the radio stations announced the total they THOUGHT they had raised…$98,125.

But a magical thing happened – WinField United, the Presenting Sponsor, jumped in and added even more money to round it up to an even $100,000!

All funds generated through this two-day event stay right here in South Dakota to pay for equipment, training and programs that will benefit the thousands of children treated at Sanford Children’s Hospital each year.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothons are broadcasted on over 350 radio stations each year. Stations engage listeners with inspiring stories of Miracle Children from area communities and ask listeners to call in and pledge support for local kids.
