Kiss Country Cares for Kids Radiothon Benefit

Biltmore Park Town Square is proud to announce that the 5th Annual Mission Children’s Radiothon – Kiss Country Cares for Kids Radiothon – with 99.9 KISS Country, will be held in the Reuter Family YMCA in Biltmore Park Town Square. This is a great opportunity to learn how Mission Children's Hospital touches the lives of thousands of families and how you can help be a part of the community of hope and healing.

The Radiothon, a benefit for Mission Children’s Hospital, hosted by Eddie Foxx and Sharon Green of 99.9 KISS Country, will be live at Reuter Family YMCA on Friday, February 22nd, from 6am in the morning, until 9pm that evening. The event will resume the next morning on Saturday, February 23rd at 6am and will run until 6pm Saturday evening.

As the only children’s hospital in Western North Carolina, Mission Children’s Hospital has been serving children from across the region since 1994 without regard for their ability to pay. They rely on the generous support of our fellow community members to make this possible.

If you would like to make a donation to this cause, please visit Mission Healthcare Foundation’s online donation form.

There are several ways to be a part of this wonderful event. Our favorite way is to visit  the Reuter Family YMCA in Biltmore Park during the Radiothon to see and hear from children and their families that have been impacted by the clinicians and staff at Mission Children’s hospital.

If you are unable to make it to the Radiothon in person, not to worry, you can listen live to 99.9 KISS Country on the radio, or you may listen online at iHeart Radio.
