Through two days of fund raising East Texas donated over $90,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

It all began Thursday, March 3 at 6 a.m. with Big D and Bubba, but it came to a final conclusion with Michael Gibson and Mandee Montana just past 7 p.m. on Friday, March 4. After sharing countless stories of St. Jude patients, totaling the donations and taking a collective deep breath the total was revealed.

East Texas has shown once again that they are collectively an astounding number of 'Partners in Hope,' donating $90,685. We cannot aptly express our gratitude for your generosity. We can simply say, 'Thank you.'

We spend a great deal of time, effort and energy preparing and executing the radiothon. Many of us are also 'Partners in Hope.' We get it, and we appreciate you. Please know that your generosity is understood. We appreciate, and we know that the children and families that benefit from St. Jude feel the same.

Thank you!
