Children's Miracle Network Telethon coming to South Texas homes


Driscoll Children's Hospital fundraiser to be televised from Corpus Christi, Harlingen

For more than two decades, Driscoll Children's Hospital and its longtime partners KIII-TV 3 in Corpus Christi and KGBT-TV 4 in Harlingen have staged the Children's Miracle Network Telethon, bringing viewers true-to-life stories of children meeting tremendous challenges with the help of South Texas' finest healthcare professionals.
This year, the event will be televised on KIII live from La Palmera Mall in Corpus Christi from 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday, June 2 and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 3. In the Rio Grande Valley, the telethon will be televised from the KGBT studio in Harlingen from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 3.

The telethon shows viewers how Driscoll Children's Hospital and its Rio Grande Valley clinics are providing highly specialized, pediatric healthcare services to children in 31 South Texas counties. To meet those needs with new physicians, equipment and programs, fundraisers such as the Children's Miracle Network Telethon are crucial. And year after year, the community responds. Last year, Children's Miracle Network fundraisers throughout South Texas resulted in donations of more than $2.2 million. The Rio Grande Valley telethon raised $750,000 alone last year.

"Driscoll Children's Hospital is thrilled with the generous and loyal support received from so many grateful people and corporations," said Martha St. Romain, Driscoll vice president of Development. "It shows a commitment that the children of South Texas deserve the highest level of quality, specialized healthcare that only Driscoll can provide."
