Pitbull and DJ Laz recently made a special visit to greet some patients at Miami Children’s Hospital and celebrate Radio Lollipop’s 14th birthday.
The two celebrities presented a check for $144,000 to Radio Lollipop and Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation, which came from proceeds from the fourth annual Radio Lollipop Radiothon on Power 96 (Miami) hosted by DJ Laz. The birthday party also featured appearances by Elmo, Cookie Monster and characters from Toy Story, including Woody and Buzz Lightyear.
Radio Lollipop is an in-house radio station that provides care, comfort, play and entertainment to children during their stay in the hospital. It broadcasts live four times a week thanks to the hard work of more than 60 volunteers who devote their time, treasure and talent to the children at Miami Children’s Hospital. Funds raised for Radio Lollipop go a long way toward providing prizes, updating the music library and providing special and unique activities for the children of South Florida and beyond. A former patient, DJ Laz is a big supporter of Miami Children’s Hospital and Foundation.
Miami Children’s Hospital is one of 170 pediatric hospitals in North America affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network and South Florida’s only freestanding Hospital dedicated exclusively to children.
