Easter Seals surpasses fundraising goal

Kevin Caufield
NewsTribune Reporter

Easter Seals 33rd Annual Telethon raised $42,000 that will be used to provide services to hundreds of area children for the coming year.

The telethon, held Friday in the Ottawa Township High School Auditorium, is the non-profit’s largest fundraiser and returned to live cable broadcasts for the first time in several years.

“We are overwhelmed with the support given,” stated Susan Bursztynsky, President/CEO of the local Easter Seals.

“We set our goal higher this year. Telethon was scheduled several weeks earlier than in the past.  Therefore, we anticipate new donations to continue to come in over the next six weeks”.

“An event like telethon simply cannot happen without our wonderful hosts, the amazing performers and the dozens of behind the scene volunteers,” Bursztynsky continued. “So many people put in so much time and energy to help the children served by Easter Seals.”

Bursztynsky stated she would like to thank the staff and administration at OTHS, Mediacom, Comcast and Kraus Cable companies who worked closely with their production company, and Atomic Imaging, which made the live-cable broadcast a reality.
Easter Seals of LaSalle & Bureau Counties serves hundreds of children in two county area by providing developmental therapy, speech therapy, screenings, evaluations, and inclusive child care services.  

Donations can still be made by calling (815) 434-0857; on their website at, or by mail to Easter Seals LBC, 1013 Adams St, Ottawa, Ill. 61350.
