Donors give $103,000 to “Give Kids a Voice”
November 29, 2011
Rick "Bubba" Taylor visits with Bethany Bertoti, a speech therapist at Providence Child Center.
The Fred Meyer Hollywood store in Portland was the setting for the third annual “Give Kids a Voice” Oldies 106.7 Radiothon on Nov. 4 and 5 to raise funds for Providence Child Center’s communications therapy program. The fundraising goal of $100,000 was surpassed as many people and sponsoring businesses enthusiastically responded to help medically fragile children find their special voice in this world.
Scott Tom shares a smile with Joslyn, a bright-eyed 6-year-old who lives at the Center for Medically Fragile Children.
Radio personalities Rick “Bubba” Taylor, Scott Tom and John Williams of Oldies 106.7 maintained the live broadcast for 26 hours. They invited Providence Child Center parents, staff and clinicians to share how important it is for every child to be able to communicate.
All gifts received from the Radiothon will help fund equipment, speech therapy sessions and program operations in the child center’s communications therapy program.
