The 30th Annual Children's Miracle Network Celebration! Telethon wrapped up Sunday with a grand total of $1,265,839.47 raised in support of the pediatric services at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Health System. The event was broadcast Sunday on KYTX CBS-19 Television and featured local and national celebrities, stories of the children impacted by the community’s generosity, and vignettes of the extensive pediatric care provided throughout Northeast Texas’ Christus Trinity Mother Frances Health System.
This weekend’s annual Celebration Telethon was the culmination of the past year’s fundraising efforts.
“Thirty years is a significant milestone,” said Robin Rowan, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Director, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System, “not only did we celebrate a year of record setting community support, we brought back children and families who have been involved with Children’s Miracle Networks from the start. This event has been a blessing to me, and I know the funds raised will be a blessing to the community.”
One hundred percent of donations made to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stay right here in our community to support pediatric services provided by Christus Trinity Mother Frances Health System. Later this summer, a community advisory committee, with representatives from area businesses that support the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, will work with pediatric caregivers to allocate the funds for specific pediatric services.
