Mayor interviewed at Eric and Kathy Radiothon For Lurie Children's Hospital
On Friday, Sept. 11, Mayor Brad Stephens was interviewed as part of 101.9 FM THE MIX’s “Eric & Kathy Radiothon for Lurie Children’s Hospital” at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital.
During the radiothon, Mayor Stephens announced the MB Financial Park Power Burst, which challenged MIX listeners to raise $10,000 within the hour for Lurie Children’s Hospital, and in return the Village of Rosemont would match those funds with an additional $10,000 donation to the hospital.
The challenge was a success with more than $20,000 raised for Lurie Children’s Hospital within the hour. The Mayor even ran into Chicago Blackhawk Niklas Hjalmarsson during his visit to Lurie!
