Thanks, Change for Kids Participants!

Posted On: 03/08/2010

Change collectors representing schools, businesses, families and other groups celebrated Sunday night at the KS95 for Kids® Change for Kids private party, held at Mall of America’s Nickelodeon Universe. Party-goers enjoyed unlimited rides, met Nickelodeon “celebrities” like Sponge Bob and Dora the Explorer, and chatted with KS95 on-air personalities. The best part? Change for Kids raised more than $70,000 for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and Children’s Cancer Research Fund — and donations are still coming in!

Special thanks to KS95 and partners Nickelodeon Universe and M&I Bank for making this exciting event — and Change for Kids — possible!  To learn more about Change for Kids, or to make an online donation, click here. 

The Harris family were the top fundraising family for the 3rd year in a row. Daughter Lily, 4, is a Gillette patient. Thanks, guys!

The Brayall family collected change in honor of their youngest child, Anthony, who receives care at Gillette. Here they are with KS95's Greg & Melissa.

The Payne family (pictured, mom Lynne and Gillette patient Allie) inspired Benson Junior and Senior High Schools in Benson, Minn. to collect change. The schools raised over $3,000!
