Audacy Raises Over $1.4 Million For Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Children’s Center

Audacy raised over $1.4 million to benefit Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, a proud member of the Children’s Miracle Network®, during Mix 106.5’s (WWMX-FM) 35th annual “Mix 106.5 Radiothon for Johns Hopkins Childrens Center.” 

Funds raised during the annual two-day event help the Children’s Center purchase vital tools and technology, fund important research and develop innovative equipment and programs, and provide patients with books, toys, games, art supplies, and more.

“This radiothon embodies the power of community coming together to uplift and support those in need,” said Tracy Brandys, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Baltimore. “With each donation, we’re not just raising funds — we’re investing in lifesaving tools, pioneering research, and creating brighter tomorrows for the children and families who rely on us. Together, we’re nurturing hope, healing and happiness, one gift at a time.”

“The radiothon is such an important event for the Children’s Center community,” said Margaret Moon, M.D., M.P.H., co-director and pediatrician-in-chief at the Children’s Center. “Whether you donated or helped in another capacity, we are profoundly grateful for all of the generous support from this event, as well as for Mix 106.5 and the volunteers and staff members who work tirelessly to make Radiothon successful year after year.”

“Whether children are getting routine checkups, receiving chemotherapy, having surgery or recovering from an illness, thousands of pediatric patients visit our hospital each year,” said David Hackam, M.D., Ph.D., co-director and surgeon-in-chief at the Children’s Center. “Every single donation helps our practitioners and staff to deliver the best possible care, participate in groundbreaking research and make each patient and their family’s experience here at the Children’s Center more special.”

The Radiothon was broadcast from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center on Thursday, February 29 and Friday, March 1. Station on-air personalities Priestly, Steve Kramer, Jess Dutra, Corinna Delgado, and Jeremy Conn shared stories of hope and inspiration from families and kids treated at JHCC. Sponsors who contributed to the Radiothon’s success include Merritt Clubs, Chick-Fil-A, Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union, Weis Markets, Jimmy The Boxer Automall and Calvert Hall College High School, as well as triple-match sponsors Wawa, Rite Aid Healthy Futures, Carroll Fuel Services and Royal Farms Stores. 

Since its inception in 1989, the Mix 106.5 radiothon has raised over $28 million for the Children’s Center and pediatric patients. Although this year’s radiothon has ended, donations can still be made at hopkinskids.org.

“Mix 106.5 Radiothon for Johns Hopkins Children’s Center” is a part of Audacy’s commitment to making a meaningful difference at scale. Audacy uses its reach and personal connection with listeners to advance causes that promote strong mental health and build sound communities.
