LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Here at KCBD we want to offer a heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped the Children's Miracle Network this weekend.
For the 27th year, our own Karin McCay & Abner Euresti hosted the event which was broadcast on KCBD NewsChannel 11 both on Saturday and Sunday.
The total on the tote board is $1,005,527 and every penny of it stays right here in the West Texas region to help sick children who otherwise wouldn't have access to the life-saving care they need.
"A lot of people gave this year. A lot of people gave from their hearts and a lot of kids are going to be helped because of that," said Abner Euresti.
"It makes such a huge difference and I think every year it reminds us that we live in the best place in the country! They know West Texas gives and we see it every year during the telethon they give to help the youngest and weakest in the community and that makes a difference," said Karin McCay.
If you missed the telethon you still have a chance to donate and read more about this year's miracle kids by (clicking here).
