VALHALLA, NY (November 17, 2015) -- 100.7 WHUD, Westchester and the Hudson Valley’s music and information station, is once again teaming up with the local community to support seriously ill and injured local children by hosting its 11th Annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothon supporting Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, the children’s hospital for the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County. The annual event is a fundraiser for the hospital, which provides children from the region and beyond with life-changing and lifesaving care.

100.7 WHUD has been a consistent supporter of the Hudson Valley’s children’s hospital for more than a decade and that support continues with this year’s event. The Radiothon will feature WHUD personalities Mike and Kacey, Tom Furci and Andy Bale broadcasting live from the lobby of Maria Fareri Children's Hospital November 18th and 19th from 5:30 am to 7 pm with evening personality Kathy Millar and overnight host Bruce Owens supporting the hospital at the 100.7 WHUD studios. Mike and Kacey will continue their efforts for the region’s children at the hospital November 20th from 5:30 am to 10 am.

Throughout the broadcast 100.7 WHUD personalities will speak live with Hudson Valley children and families, who will be returning to the hospital to share uplifting and inspiring stories of triumph over significant medical challenges with the help of Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth).
