Akron Children's to honor Clear Channel

Staff report


At its third annual Champions for our Valley’s Children, Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley will honor Clear Channel Youngstown.

The dinner celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. May 14 at The Lake Club in Poland. In addition, 15 individuals and organizations will receive the Children’s Advocate Award.

The Champions event will highlight Akron Children’s progress in the Valley and recognize those who have helped, including donors, volunteers, staff and community partners.

JoAnn Stock is Akron Children’s director of development.

Since the opening of the Beeghly campus in Boardman in 2008, more than $7.5 million has been donated to support the hospital.

Clear Channel Youngstown will be recognized for its support and generosity. During the past four years, the Miracles and Promises Radiothon, which is broadcast live on Mix 98.9 and 570 WKBN, and promoted on all local Clear Channel stations, has generated more than $540,000 for Mahoning Valley programs and services.

The Children’s Advocate Award recognizes Valley individuals and organizations that exhibit the spirit of caring and are working to make a difference in the lives of children in the communities the hospital serves.
