Astral Media Radio Niagara's 5th annual Radiothon is in full swing...



    ST. CATHARINES, ON, March 28 /CNW Telbec/ - The three days 5th annual
Have A Heart - Niagara Kids Radiothon wraps up today. Organized by Astral
Media Radio's 105.7 EZ Rock, 97.7 HTZ FM and NEWSTALK 610 CKTB, the radiothon
supports the Niagara Peninsula Children's Centre, which it committed to
helping mentally, physically and communicatively challenged children be their
best. Since Wednesday, the three radio stations interview parents, children,
doctors and friends in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the Niagara
Peninsula Children's Centre.
    "Through the generosity of our listeners each year, we see what an
incredible difference we have made in the lives of so many families in
Niagara," declares Astral Media Radio's General Manager Madelyn Hamilton. "The
tangible results of our Radiothon are evident by the number of kids we have
been able to get off of the waiting list and into the Children's Centre".
    The Have A Heart - Niagara Kids Radiothon concludes tonight at 7p.m.,
live from the Sears Court at The Pen Centre in St. Catharines. Last year's
Radiothon raised over $200,000 for the Niagara Peninsula Children's Centre and
the ongoing 5th edition is well on the way to reaching the goal, which will
translate into over $1 million raised for the community over the past 5 years.
    To donate, listeners are invited to call 905-688-1115 or visit
