CFMB 1280AM Montréal Raises $80,000 for Montréal’s Underprivileged

Canada’s first multicultural radio station, CFMB 1280AM Radio Montréal, raised $80,000 in 4 hours (from 4pm to 8pm) during its 43rd annual radiothon, la Maratona di Natale on November 25th, 2012.

Since 1969, la Maratona di Natale, produced and broadcasted by CFMB 1280AM Radio Montréal’s Italian programming in association with 10 Montréal catholic churches, has raised over 3 million dollars for Montréal’s underprivileged. The money raised is managed by each of the 10 catholic churches and will be used to help underprivileged families of each parish.

With the help of Montréal’s Italian community, many Montrealers will be having a happier Holiday Season.
