Easter Seals telethon starts at 5 p.m. today

OTTAWA — Easter Seals of La Salle and Bureau Counties along with Motion Industries will present the 34th annual telethon 5-9 p.m. today at Ottawa Township High School.

“It helps fill the gaps where our other revenue sources fall short. Last year we wrote off $250,000 in unreimbursed expenses, so the fundraising helps fill that gap,” Sally Honiotes, director of development, said of the telethon, which is the largest fundraiser of the year for the nonprofit organization.

This year’s telethon goal is $50,000.

It will be aired live on local cable public access channels. Check local listings.

Roughly 99 percent of every donation will stay with Easter Seals of La Salle and Bureau Counties.
