Cox Media Group’s WSB-AM/WSBB-FM hosted a two day radio event in late July to raise money for the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The 20th annual event raised more than $1.5 million.
In 20 years, the 95.5 WSB Care-a-Thon has raised more than $26 million to benefit research and family support services at the Aflac Cancer Center.
“This year’s fundraiser is one we’ll never forget because of the incredible financial strain coronavirus presented to our community of donors.
