The All Children's Hospital Telethon on WFLA-Ch. 8 Saturday and Sunday raised $1,617,668 for All Children's Hospital, according to Joel Momberg, the hospital's executive vice president. In addition, Saturday's Night in Straub Park and Sunday's Taste of Pinellas, also at Straub Park, brought in $163,000, said chairman Lewis Kroll. "And 60 percent of this will go to All Children's," he said. Kroll and other members of the Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Restaurant Association, which sponsored the two-day music and food event, consider it "the most crowd-pleasing event we've had in many a year," Kroll said. All Children's has just undergone a $20-million expansion, the largest in the history of the hospital, Momberg said. "This money will help pay for the expansion," he said.Ulrich adds name to law firm
