East Texas has been so generous in the past raising money for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. In the years KNUE has been a part of the Country Cares Radiothon, we have collectively raised more $2.5 million here locally for such a great cause!

The 2015 Country Cares Radiothon is happening next Thursday and Friday, March 5-6, and we once again need your support East Texas!

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The money you donate to St Jude goes to help so many families in need. As founder Danny Thomas always said, "No child should die in the dawn of life."

And since the hospital was founded their sole mission has been to eradicate cancer and other life threatening diseases from kids. The money you donate helps pay for those treatments, food, hotel stays for the families, and supplies and equipment.

No child who visits St Jude ever receives a bill ... EVER! That is only possible thanks to the people like you here in East Texas who donate each year to this wonderful cause.

So please join me, Big Stew, along with Mandee Montana as we host the 2015 Country Cares Radiothon next Thursday and Friday. A special thank you to Pratt Homes for once again being the title sponsor for the entire telethon, and the support of our other businesses for their contribution to being an Angel of Hope this year!

So, if you do nothing more than clean out all the lose change in your car, that can go along way in helping a family in need. Of course, if you are in a position to do more, that always helps, too! Thank you from the entire staff here at KNUE for your help and generosity again this year.
