SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Children's Miracle Network Radiothon wraps up with a generous donation.

Saturday a check for $50,538 was presented to the Children's Hospital at Memorial. Every cent of which will stay here in our area. The fundrasing event has been on air on 98.7 the River since Thursday. Organizers say they cannot thank the community enough for their outpouring of support.

"The Children's Hospital is not just caring for little adults, it's specialized equipment, the right stretchers, chairs that literally make a difference in providing the state of the art care for our kids," said Senior Vice President of Memorial Health Bill Lee.

"and the support that their family needs, so like this morning, we raised money for a sleep chair for parents because we know that children need special care and their families need special care as well and we want to make them feel comfortable," said President and CEO of Memorial Health Maggie Gill.
