Radiothon nets $212,050 for St. Jude’s kids

The 2012 Country Cares for St. Jude’s Kids radiothon — which aired Nov. 8-9 on KYGO radio and was presented by Colorado’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives — raised a grand total of $212,050 to help support children’s cancer research and treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The record amount far surpassed last year’s previous high of $105,375 (although that was a one-day event).

Tri-State and its Front Range Colorado member co-ops United Power, Mountain View Electric, Poudre Valley REA and Morgan County REA have supported the mission of St. Jude’s through the annual radiothon for nine years. “Participating in this event once again provided us a high level of exposure along with the opportunity to put into action one of Touchstone Energy’s core values — commitment to community,” said Tri-State communications manager Jim Van Someren. “Thanks to everyone who contributed and helped support such a worthwhile cause.”
