Central PA Credit Unions rock the 2019 Pay 4 Play radiothon to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

GREENSBORO, NC (November 13, 2019) — They’ve done it again! Vizo Financial and Central Pennsylvania credit unions rocked another year of the Pay 4 Play radiothon benefitting Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals as co-sponsors and volunteers! As the Pay 4 Play
naming rights sponsor, Central Pennsylvania credit unions supported the 105.7 The X Rocks People’s Morning Show team in raising money for local CMN Hospital, Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, Pa.

For 13 years, the 28-hour radiothon has been allowing listeners to request a song of their choice in exchange for a donation to Penn State Children’s Hospital. Some songs require higher donations, depending on how far the song deviates from the host station’s alternative rock genre.

The 2019 Pay 4 Play, hosted by 105.7 The X Rocks People’s Morning Show team of Nipsey, Earl David Reed and Jen Shade, was held from 5 a.m. on Nov. 7 through 9 a.m. on Nov. 8. During this time, the morning show hosts accepted requests and donations from callers with a little help from the phone bank volunteers, including employees from several Central Pennsylvania credit unions.

This year’s event raised $359,410.19! In its 13-year run, Pay 4 Play has brought in more than $2 million for CMN Hospitals.

The following Central Pennsylvania credit unions were the naming rights sponsors of this year’s Pay 4 Play:

  • AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union
  • Belco Community Credit Union
  • First Capital Federal Credit Union
  • Heritage Valley Federal Credit Union
  • Hershey Federal Credit Union
  • New Cumberland Federal Credit Union
  • Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union (PSECU)
  • Vizo Financial Corporate Credit Union
  • Wheatland Federal Credit Union
  • White Rose Federal Credit Union

“It’s become a tradition at this point for Vizo Financial and our fellow credit unions to participate in the annual Pay 4 Play radiothon,” said Erin Doan, administration and community relations director for Vizo Financial. “There’s never any doubt about the excitement we have for Pay 4 Play – it’s always a joy to be a part of something that makes such an impact for the kids and families of Penn State Children’s Hospital. The camaraderie, outpouring of love and inspirational stories continue to make this an event we’re proud to support!”

All $359,410.19 will be donated to fund treatment programs, equipment and other necessities to help care for the children of Penn State Children’s Hospital. To learn more about Penn State Children’s Hospital, click here.
