The Radiothon


We are indepted to Bell Media who donate advertising air time to the club to sell on behalf of the Kelowna "Have a Heart charity.Have a Heart logo

A one-day fundraising campaign for the Kelowna General Hospital, the ‘Have A Heart’ Radiothon features a 12-hour live broadcast on 99.9 Sun FM, 101.5 EZ Rock and AM 1150 that calls upon listeners to help raise much-needed funds to support care for young patients at KGH. The money collected helps cover the costs of new specialised pediatric equipment such as SiPap respiratory machines, cast saws and casting supplies, sinuscopes and bronchoscopes.

Every year, the radiothon is broadcast over Bell Media's three radio stations in Kelowna, Sun FM, EZ Rock and AM 1150.

OKM Rotary sells $250 advertising slots, donated by Bell, for broadcast on the three stations and in addition presents vouchers for $250 discount on any further advertising made on Bell stations by the donor companies during the year.

In 2015, thanks to AM1150, 101.5EZRock and 99.9SunFM, and all of the individuals and businesses who contributed, $84,157 was raised in the 12th Annual Have a Heart Radiothon. On Thursday, February 12 the community came together to help improve care for sick children at KGH. Over 17,000 sick children each year come through KGH’s Emergency Department, Pediatric Outpatient Services and Perinatal Care – that’s nearly 50 every day! Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Pear Court at Orchard Park Shopping Centre, purchased an item in the online auction or held their own fundraiser. You helped make a difference!
