Skydivers help raise money for Illinois Valley children

Posted by wlpo on May 17, 2015

The donations are still being counted but from all indications the 35th Annual Easter Seals of La Salle and Bureau Counties Telethon was a success.

President and CEO of the Illinois Valley Easter Seals office Susan Bursztynsky says their goal was to raise $50,000 and they should at the very least come close to that. A new part of raising funds this year was to offer a $50 tandem jump at Skydive Chicago for any donor who raised at least $500. Bursztynsky says they had four people take advantage of the skydiving.

Sunday’s telethon was the first year for the fundraiser to be held at Skydive Chicago outside Ottawa.
