34th Annual Children’s Miracle Network Telethon

The 34th annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospital Celebration / telethon was held in June at Whataburger Field. This successful event commemorated another year of community support for Driscoll Children’s Hospital. The annual celebration recognizes donations from individuals, community organizations, corporations, and foundations that support the mission of Driscoll. The total amount raised for the 2018 celebration was $774,000, and all proceeds will directly benefit the patients of Driscoll.


The telethon helps hospitals raise funds and awareness by partnering with local TV stations to highlight hospitals, sponsors and local miracle stories. Over $2 million in revenue is recognized throughout the weekend as several hundred people participate for live interviews with the television hosts. Since 1983, revenue, generated throughout the year by our CMN National and Local Sponsors, annual events, direct mail campaigns, and call-in pledges, is celebrated.
