Words by Tess Becker

Baltimore’s ‘Mix106.5’ recently had its 34th annual Radiothon fundraiser – and this year was a record-breaker.

The fundraiser was the largest ever for Audacy hot AC WWMX Baltimore and they raised $1.425 million to benefit Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore.

“We’re proud to have once again united with our listeners to support families and children in Maryland through the selfless, unwavering mission of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center,” said Tracy Brandys, Senior VP/Market Manager at Audacy Baltimore. “We’re thankful for the generosity of our listeners and sponsors who helped us set a ‘Mix 106.5 Radiothon’ record this year.”

The marathon featured personalities from the radio station and contributions from all types of outlets including individuals and corporations like Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union, Weis Markets, Jimmy The Boxer Automall, and Wawa.

“Radiothon is the largest fundraising event of the year, and it is such a huge part of who we are and what we do at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center,” says Margaret Moon, M.D., M.P.H., Co-Director and Pediatrician-in-Chief, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.

“We are so grateful for each and every donor, as well as Mix 106.5, our staff and the volunteers who make this special two-day event possible every year.”
