St. Jude Radiothon tops last year’s total 

The area’s 2022 St. Jude Z107.5 Radiothon brought in $84,289 last Wednesday and Thursday, approximately $8,000 more than last year’s $76,016. 

“What a success this year’s radiothon has been,” said Nancy Darland, radiothon chair with the co-sponsoring Zeta Rho chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha service group. “It’s very rewarding to know that so many people in our area get involved with this worthwhile cause.” 

The success of the event year after year is due to a true team effort from sponsors, local businesses and multiple community groups, she said. This was the radiothon’s 41st year. 

“Of course, we couldn’t have a radiothon if we didn’t have the dedicated staff of a radio station,” Darland said, “and that certainly describes Z107.5, whose staffers spent countless hours preparing for the event as well as broadcasting it live. They give their heart and soul to this and are to be thoroughly commended.”

At the close of the event at 6 p.m. Thursday, volunteers posed with a presentation check showing the amount raised. They are shown in the photo above (from left):
