Dreams Come True annual radiothon underway

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - There is a way the public can play a big part in making a dream come true for sick children in the Baton Rouge area.

From Thursday through Saturday, you can call in and donate to the 5th Annual Dreams Come True Radiothon. All of the money stays in Louisiana.

Last year, the organization raised enough money to grant wishes for 64 children. It would be nice to top that this year, so no amount is too small.

"What we want people to know, our kids are local kids and we're raising local money to stay here locally to support the kids," said Max Himmel, president of Dreams Come True Louisiana. "Just call. We don't care if it's $1, $5 or $500. We just need every, any penny we can get."

Helping to put a smile on the face of a sick child is easy.

All you have to do is call 225-490-8190.
