61st annual WHAS Crusade for Children tops $5.6 million

On the weekend when California Chrome was the favorite to win horse racing’s first Triple Crown in 36 years, the people of Kentucky and Indiana put their money on a sure bet, the 61st annual WHAS Crusade for Children. The final tote board tallied $5,637,680 as America’s most successful local telethon came to a close.

The 30-hour Internet/radio/telethon kicked off with a stirring variety show headlined by country singer J D Shelburne and hosted by WHAS11’s Melissa Swan and 84WHAS radio’s Terry Meiners Saturday June 7. It all ended with Crusade volunteers crowding into WHAS-TV’s historic studio H singing the traditional “God Bless America” just before 7:00pm (EDT) Sunday June 8, 2014.

“We’re thrilled that the wonderful people of Kentuckiana stepped up once again to help children with special needs in our community by contributing so generously to the 61st annual WHAS Crusade for children! It’s an annual miracle,” said WHAS Crusade for Children President & CEO Dawn Lee.

100 percent of $160 million = $160 million

In its first 61 years, the Crusade has raised $160 million for children with special needs. 100 percent of all donations raised Crusade weekend are returned in the form of grants to agencies, schools and hospitals that make life better for children with special needs.

It takes a cast of thousands to stage the annual miracle. From individual donors dropping pocket change into boots at firefighter road blocks to children with lemonade stands to corporations offering payroll deduction, it all comes together each year on the first weekend in June.

The leaders

Nearly 60 percent of donations are collected by about 200 fire departments in Kentucky and Indiana.
Like last year, the fire department leading the way was Pleasure Ridge Park (PRP) Fire District with $286,435. PRP was the one that started fire department involvement with the Crusade in1956 when Chief Ernie Bohler brought $400 on the Memorial Auditorium stage in Louisville and challenged all fire departments to get involved.

Also repeating from last year, the Archdiocese of Louisville led all non-fire organizations with a total of $297,000 in contributions. That’s a Crusade record for the Archdiocese.

So many to thank
The annual Crusade Internet/radio/telethon kicked off at 1:00pm (EDT) on Saturday, June 7 and aired in its entirety on WHAS Radio (AM 840), WHAS-TV (Channel 11.1) and worldwide on WHAS11.com.
