CMN Telethon a huge success

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A big thank you and congratulations go out to our area.

Many people helped out over the weekend for the Annual Childrens Miracle Network Telethon.

WTOC's Mike Manhattan and Dawn Baker hosted the annual event, and the amount raised was amazing! More than $830,000 was raised over the past year. All the money will go towards the Children's Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center, the only Level 3 Neo Natal Care Unit in Southeast Georgia.

If you missed the telethon, you can still donate by calling 912-350-4266, or you can text a $5 donation to 50-555 and type the word "memorial."
