LGE Community CU, Marietta; CDC CU, Atlanta; Georgia FCU, Duluth; Retail ECU, Atlanta; Pinnacle CU, Atlanta; and Delta Community CU, Atlanta, all participated. The radiothon raised more than $825,000, with 100% of the donations going to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Stories about the lives of children and their families were broadcast live from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, giving listeners an idea of the impact their donations would have. Many of the credit union volunteers were inspired by this event and are looking forward to the next radiothon, GCUA said. Celebrity R&B singer Ne-Yo participated in the event and stopped by the radiothon to encourage volunteers. Donations for the past six years total $6.6 million.
