Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – The KISS for Kids Holiday Radiothon held on Dec. 5 and 6 live from Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital was a huge success raising $51,485 for local sick and injured children.

The 2-day, 26-hour broadcast featured local children who have been treated at the hospital as well as families’ stories of how the hospital and pediatric services have made a difference in their lives. Hosts Gary Chrisman, Bob Hauer, Andi Kurzweg and Gail Bair spent the two days telling miracle stories and encouraging listeners to become Miracle Makers by giving $20 per month.

All the funds raised during the radiothon event will stay local to provide high quality care for children in our region.

KISS 102.7 in Williamsport and the Geisinger Foundation’s Children’s Miracle Network team would like to thank the listeners and sponsors who gave generously to help provide care for kids and their families. 

Radiothon sponsors included Moff & Associates Investment Planning, Williamsport; PMF Industries, Williamsport; Kerstetter Law, Lewisburg; Best Cleaners, Paxinos; Hurwitz Batteries, South Williamsport; Hudock Capital Group, Williamsport; Sunbury Motors; PALCO Federal Credit Union, Muncy; Weis Markets, Sunbury; and W&L Subaru, Northumberland. In addition, we would like to thank Dunkin’ in Danville, Subway on Bloom Road in Danville and Domino’s on Railroad Street in Danville for providing food and refreshments for the radiothon staff.
