SALT LAKE CITY -- The 34th annual KSL Radiothon for Primary Children's Medical Center ended Friday evening, and organizers are calling it a big success.

The two-day event raised $449,498 for the hospital. This year's total is the third highest in the radiothon's history and was slightly better than last year's total.

"We were just hoping the community would be able to do somewhere near where we were last year," said Primary Children's CEO Joe Mott.

For 26 hours, volunteers, employee groups and others manned the phones at the hospital, taking pledges.

One hundred percent of the money donated through the radiothon goes directly to the hospital, helping to provide medical care to children regardless of a family's ability to pay.
