For Immediate Release





Since 2007 KISS FM has raised $419,000 for St. Jude alongside celebrity partners like Ashford and Simpson, Ray J, Leelah James, Estelle and more



New York, NY. (April 7, 2009) – On Friday and Saturday March 27 and 28, 98.7 KISS FM, New York’s “Best Variety of Old School and Today’s R&B,” joined arms with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during their third annual KISS Cares Radiothon.  Annually, KISS FM helps raise money for the life saving research and treatment conducted at St. Jude, the premier pediatric cancer research center, and since 2007 over $419,000 has been raised to help St. Jude in its mission of finding cures and saving children.

This year, KISS FM and St. Jude reached forward and garnered the support of celebrity donations from Valerie Ashford of the legendary R&B group, Ashford and Simpson and R&B and reality TV sensation, Ray J.  Special guest appearances and interviews also included R&B songstresses Leelah James, Estelle and Laura Izibor and as a partner in the initiative, WPIX Channel 11 also kicked off their Friday morning news program at the Radiothon with Jill Nicolini and also manned the call center along with WPIX’s trusty weatherman, Mr. Gee and co-anchors Jim Watkins and Peter Thorne.

Several former St. Jude patients and their families visited the KISS FM studios and shared their stories of tragedy to triumph and expressed that without facilities like St. Jude and outlets like 98.7 KISS FM, their life’s destiny may have made another turn.

Thanks to 98.7 KISS FM’s tote board sponsor, Jacob Fuchsburg Law Firm, the final radiothon tally was $80,216 for 2009.  Along with Jacob Fuchsburg Law Firm, the 3rd Annual KISS Cares Radiothon for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital sponsors included Angel of the Hour Sponsor, Sleepy’s and food sponsor, Popeye’s.

Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and across the country.  Known primarily for its medical strides in the field of childhood cancers, St. Jude has also made significant advancements in the research and treatment of pediatric HIV/AIDS and sickle cell disease. No family at St. Jude pay for medical treatment not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay.  For more information on how you can be a St. Jude donor, visit
