(Taylorville)—WTIM Newstalk 97.3 in Taylorville
held its 6th annual Telethon to raise money for the United Way of Christian County, today (Tuesday) on the air from 9 to 11am.
United Way of Christian County executive director Joni Beyers, along volunteers Terri France, Aaron Allen and Jon Robinson, co-hosted the 2-hour telethon with WTIM president Randal J. Miller.
Thanks to the generosity of WTIM listeners from across Central Illinois, $2665 was raised to benefit the 25 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.
