The most precious gift...

The Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children is Delaware's only hospital dedicated to the care and treatment of children suffering acute illness and traumatic injury. As one of the nation's leading centers for pediatric care, duPont Hospital for Children treats all children, regardless of a family's ability to pay for care. Because of its unique geography, duPont Hospital for Children is not able to participate or receive support from the Children's Miracle Network.

Everyday, the financial commitment that is made to provide care is extraordinary. That is why the hospital is asking the community for help.

101.7FM WDEL is proud to announce that we are once again partnering with Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children to help kids from across the Delaware Valley. On September 7th and 8th, 101.7FM WDEL will host the sixth annual “Help our Kids” Radiothon.


Through a unique partnership, Delaware’s three leading luxury car dealers are joining together to raise awareness and donations for the children at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. WSTW, WDEL and WFAI are proud to have Union Park BMW, Audi Wilmington, Mercedes Benz Wilmington, and Porsche of Delaware as "Partners for the Kids." Each dealer will donate a part of the proceeds from the sale of every vehicle during the month of August to the Hospital. With the help of our partners, we can support duPont Hospital for Children’s mission to be a Place of Healing!
