2023 Kapiolani Radiothon Raises Record $820,130
2023 was a banner year for the Kapiolani Radiothon for Kids. The signature two-day fundraiser for Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children began with the largest single donation in Radiothon history and ended with a stunning new record total, thanks to passionate donors and community partners.
UHA Health Insurance kicked off the excitement early on Day 1. Just after Michael W. Perry launched the live broadcast on the airwaves of Radiothon partner KSSK FM 92.3/AM590, UHA made a surprise announcement. UHA had help from Marcie Dela Cruz, who made history at Kapiolani in 2015 by giving birth to the first surviving quintuplets in Hawaii. The now 8-year-old siblings lined up in front of the KSSK stage to unveil T-shirts that spelled out “$250K,” revealing UHA’s commitment to match all donations up to $250,000. It is the largest single gift in Radiothon’s 17-year history.
The generosity of UHA and countless other sponsors, donors and supporters propelled this year's Radiothon to a new all-time fundraising record — a stunning $820,130. This shatters the last record of $575,651 set in 2021 and marks a new milestone. The Radiothon has now raised more than $4 million for Kapiolani since the event began in 2007 in partnership with KSSK. Watch the video to relive the amazing two-day event.
