When the telethon went off the air last year, over 175 thousand dollars was raised.  Easter Seals provides education, outreach and advocacy for people living with autism and other disabilities.

Miller Group Charitable Trust is a platinum level sponsor for the telethon.  Miller Group Media includes AM 1220 WLPO, 99.3 WAJK, 96.5 the Wolf, NewsTribune and AgriNews.
