Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - We hear it all the time, that Buffalo is a 'giving community'.  Proof positive was demonstrated Thursday as the WBEN/KISS Cares For Kids RadioThon to benefit Oishei Children's Hospital raised in excess of $213,000 and the tally continues to grow.

The goal for the day-long broadcast on WBEN and KISS 98.5 was $173,000 to enable the hospital to purchase a new high-tech ENT Tower that will improve imaging capabilities for ear, nose and throat conditions.

Hour after hour, the calls to the busy phone bank continued to pour in as hospital staff, patients and their families told their stories of how the hospital changes lives on a daily basis.

As the so-called 'Mayor of Children's Hospital', William, told Susan Rose and Brian Mazurowski Thursday morning, "Shazam"!  We did it.

Thank you BUFFALO.
