Easter Seals will hold their 33rd Annual Telethon on Saturday, April 10, from noon to 5 p.m. on KRGV Channel 5.

The Board of Directors invite you to join them and support Easter Seals by calling in your pledge. Each board member will be the captain of their 4 member team and has pledged to raise $8,000 during their 30-minute segment. The board champions the Easter Seals mission of enabling children and adults with disabilities reach their highest level of independence.

“When we call upon our friends, family and business associates to help reach this goal, please know that your donation will provide rehabilitation services for a child to walk, for a child to talk or just live an independent life,” says Billy Canales, Easter Seals board president. “Please open your hearts and make the phones ring! Keep the board members and sponsors very busy writing up your pledge,” asks Becky Garcia, board member and 2010 Telethon VIP Chairperson.

Easter Seals extends a special thanks to all of the sponsors that support the 33rd annual Telethon: Trappings, The Monitor, Aztec Realty/Superior Storage, Evolutions Therapy, Lone Star National Bank, H-E-B, Security Service Federal Credit Union, Bert Ogden RGV and News Channel 5.
