WTIM Newstalk 97.3 in Taylorville held its 6th annual telethon to raise money for the United Way of Christian County on Tuesday from 9 to 11 in the morning.
Terrie France, D.J. Kennedy and Pam Peabody, as well as United Way of Christian County executive director Joni Beyers, co-hosted the 2-hour telethon.
Thanks to the generosity of WTIM listeners from across Central Illinois, $1830 was raised to benefit the 23 member agencies that serve over 10,000 people in Christian County. Many of the donors that called in pledges were first-time donors, which pleased United Way officials.
WTIM and the United Way thank all the businesses and individuals that called in pledges during the 2-hour event. The United Way’s campaign recently kicked off, with this year’s goal being $140,000.
