60th Annual Free Care Fund Benefit Show Raises Record Total

The 60th Annual Free Care Fund Benefit Show presented by KDKA-TV raised more than $2.2 million in donations and pledges during the annual broadcast held on Thursday, Dec. 19. In this celebratory 60th year, we hit a remarkable fundraising milestone by raising $60 million in 60 years to support the Free Care Fund. Without the support of our community and our incredible staff at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, providing this level of expert, compassionate care to children and their families in need simply would not be possible. 

The top three corporate donors to this year’s 2013 Free Care Fund Benefit Show were Howard Hanna, Eat’n Park and GNC. The top school donor was Avonworth Middle/High School. 

Thank you to KDKA-TV and NewsRadio 1020 KDKA as well as Children’s Hospital faculty, staff, volunteers, patients, families, and all of the donors who helped make this event a huge success!
