Did you tune in for the 8th Annual “Bob Plays Anything for Children” BOB-a-Thon?

June 30, 2020

Bob A Thon Team

Michael Malpiedi and Team BOB-a-Thon 94.7 2020

This year’s BOB-a-Thon 94.7 was a tremendous success and raised nearly $30,000 for the Children’s Care Fund!

Listeners were treated throughout the day to stories of the Fund’s impact on our community. Interviews with patient families, physicians, UPMC leadership, and more tugged at our hearts and made this cause truly come alive.

Radio personality Joe Lang and his son Evan, whose personal journey with cancer originally inspired the event, led the way and hosted the day-long fundraiser.

A special thank you goes to our sponsors:

  • UPMC Health Plan
  • Bonnell’s Auto Group
  • Burger King Erie
  • Rick Weaver Buick GMC
  • A. Caplan Company
  • Atacolypse Food Truck

The Children’s Care Fund at Hamot Health Foundation is used to help provide the resources, financial support, programs, capital, and research necessary to help children and their families throughout our community.
