Using their nationwide platform for a good cause, The Bobby Bones Show has raised another massive pile of cash for sick kids, sending $2.25 million to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The big-money donation was raised by the show’s fans during its annual two-day Radiothon on December 3-4 — a special which also called on country stars like Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and more to help.
“I say it all the time, but none of this is possible without the passion of the #BTeam,” Bones said. “Supporting the kids and families at St. Jude is so important to us and I’m so grateful all of you show up year after year and make this event so incredible.”
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the nation’s leading facilities in fighting childhood cancer of all kinds, and their mission is to make sure no family ever has to worry about money as their child fights. No St. Jude family ever pays a dime for their child’s treatment or associated lodging, and Bones and his listeners have now raised a total of over $16.25 million for that cause.
In related news, Bobby Bones is currently filming his travel TV series Breaking Bobby Bones, slated to debut on National Geographic early next year. He has also returned to his role as official in-house mentor on American Idol’s upcoming 4th season, premiering on ABC February 14.
