The 2019 Regalando Amor Radiotón — Gifting Love Radiothon — benefiting Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 14, and Friday, Feb.15, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

For the first time since the event began in 2010, the radiothon will be broadcast live from Seacrest Studio in Children’s Hospital.

Tune in to WMGC El Jefe (96.7 FM, 810 AM, 105.3 FM) to hear on-air personalities interview patients, families and hospital staff about their experiences at Children’s Hospital.

Last year, the Hispanic Radiothon saw more than $60,000 in pledges over two days.

Since 2010, the annual event has raised more than $325,000.

This year, Jaci Velasquez, a bilingual Christian music artist, will make a special appearance on Friday, Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to noon.
