Lonestar 99.5 FM is teaming up with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for a two-day radiothon to benefit childhood cancer and disease research.

From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday (March 5) and Friday (March 6), we'll be broadcasting from right here at the Lonestar studios in an effort to help eradicate childhood cancer once and for all.

Lonestar's own Bobby Bones, Jacqui Neal and Doug Brannson will be on air and will be joined by special guests throughout the radiothon.

A big goal is signing people up as a Partner in Hope, which means pledging just $20 a month on a credit card. Beginning Thursday at 6 a.m., the phone lines will be open and we'll be looking for you. Call 1-800-795-1800 to get involved and become a Partner in Hope.

We'll also be giving away some great prizes. Anyone who becomes a Partner in Hope before 5 p.m. on Friday (March 6) will be automatically entered into our drawing for some great prizes, including a guitar signed by over a dozen country music stars, including Josh Abbott, Zac Brown, "The Voice" season 7 winner Craig Wayne Boyd, Gloriana and The Band Perry.

For those who would like to enter to win these great prizes but aren't able to become a Partner In Hope, you can still have your name added to the drawing simply by becoming a Lonestar 99.5 FM newsletter subscriber. Do that by clicking on the big button below and submitting your email address.
