Radio Lollipop, Miami Children’s Hospital’s (MCH) in-house radio station, will host a night filled with fun and laughter at its annual “A Night at the Improv.” The comedy show will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, at the Miami Improv, 3390 Mary St. in Coconut Grove.
Local comedians Dean Napolitano, Jon Vargas and Orlando Leyba will donate their time to bring smiles to attendees. This year’s show, hosted by DJ106.5’s DJ Laz and NBC6’s Roxanne Vargas, will benefit the renovation of the 16-year-old radio station, which brings joy, laughter, play and entertainment to hospitalized children at Miami Children’s Hospital.
Tickets for the event can be purchased for $30 each and one ticket is good for two admissions. Raffle tickets also can be purchased for the chance to win one of many donated prizes, including a trip for two to Curacao courtesy of Viva Travel, a sevenday Royal Caribbean Cruise, a two-night stay at the Ritz Carlton St. Thomas, brunch for two at the Biltmore Hotel and many more. This year’s raffle tickets are 6 for $20 or 15 for $30. Radio Lollipop was founded in England and MCH was the first hospital to establish a U.S. program.
Radio Lollipop is the only hospital-run radio program in South Florida. A group of talented and passionate volunteers provide entertainment, music, crafts and activities to hospitalized children on a weekly basis.
During program hours patients can visit the studio, help Radio Lollipop presenters ddejay the show, work on creative activities, win on-air prizes and request songs. Radio Lollipop at MCH broadcasts live from the main playroom studio every Terrific Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday and Thrilling Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
