ODESSA - It was another amazing year for the Children's Miracle Network and Medical Center Hospital in West Texas.
The annual telethon on NewsWest9 raised just over $360,000. Despite a rough economy, residents of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico opened their hearts and pocketbooks.
Area companies and organizations also stepped up to the plate in a big way, donating tens of thousands to the effort.
All of the money raised will stay right here in West Texas and help Medical Center Hospital provide state-of-the-art care for children. The hospital will use the funds to continue updating its Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit or NICU.
Last year alone, MCH helped 2,500 kids from across the region.
