The Hours of Hope Radiothon was broadcast on KQDY-FM 94.5 and KYYY-FM 92.9 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 19-20, with CUAD staff and volunteers taking pledges over the phone.
The fundraiser had continuous mentions of "Brought to you by the Credit Unions of North Dakota" throughout the two-day event.
The grand total included a $5,000 Miracle Match by CO-OP Financial Services, and 100% of funds raised go to CMN Hospitals.
Two previous radiothons, also sponsored by CUAD, raised $155,000 in Fargo in January and $34,000 in Grand Forks, N.C., in February (The Memo March 19).
