WPSD Reporters

PADUCAH —  The 55th Annual Lions Club WPSD Local 6 Telethon of Stars is in the history books.

This year $346,787 in pledges were raised during the 15 hour long live telethon. 

The money helps people living in the Local 6 region.  Clients of the four centers, one in each state. Easter Seals West Kentucky in Paducah; T.L.C. of Southern Illinois; Community Developmental Services (CDS) in Martin, Tennessee; and Easter Seals Southeast Missouri. All of the centers deal with disabled children and adults, with CDS focusing primarily on adults. All of the money raised by the telethon goes directly to these centers. 

Tonight on WPSD Local 6 at 5 and WPSD Local 6 At 10 we'll hear from those involved on why they feel that the Telethon of Stars is so important to our communities.
