Ronald McDonald House Charities Telethon

The RMHC Telethon On NewsChannel 9 Saturday Night Raises Nearly $2-Million Dollars

An annual event for more than 20 years has come to an end but not before raising nearly 2-million-dollars.

The first Ronald McDonald House Charities telethon aired on NewsChannel 9 in 1994.

The organization helps families with critically ill kids receiving medical treatment in the our area.

Saturday night, NewsChannel 9 aired the last telethon for the charity.

Jane Kaylor tells us why the telethon has meant so much over the years.

"The telethon is a wonderful way for all those people that've been working so hard for us all year to come on & show their friends & family where their donations are going," said Kaylor.

$1,189.000 dollars was raised.

All of that money will stay in our community to help families in need.
