What’s on – 30A TV ?
3rd Annual Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center telethon
By Paul Vizard, CEO 30A Television
In 2015, Paul Vizard approached Julie Hurst at Emerald Children’s Advocacy Centers (ECCAC) in Niceville to co host a “Jerry Lewis” style Telethon, to raise money and create awareness for the ECCAC. The 30A TV Telethon is now set for year 3, having raised $17,000 the first year, and over $33,000 in year two. This year’s event is set for November 30th, 6-9pm to be held at AJ’s Grayton Beach. Audience wristbands are available for $25 on that night, which will include a beverage and choice of several appetizers.
In previous years, the telethon has been a mixture of in depth interviews and entertainment. This year is no exception. Luke Langford and Redd are booked to MC the event, with a string of great local and special guest appearances, some so famous we cant say, so you need to attend to find out.
The event will also be broadcast live on Facebook, featuring special packages and items available to pledge on or purchase. The phone number to call in is 850-865-0835 and AJ’s has graciously offered to donate a portion of menu items to the cause. So come out and enjoy a great meal while the telethon is being filmed live!
“We so appreciate that 30A TV is doing this telethon for our kids,” commented ECCAC’s CEO, Julie Hurst. “Please join us in person or on the live broadcast, and help make a difference by making a contribution that will ultimately benefit children in Walton and Okaloosa County who are experiencing abuse, abandonment or neglect.”
After the live telethon on November 30th,, it will continue to be re-broadcast periodically through the end of 2017. Donations are requested live, in person or online during the broadcast, and can also be made after the event for several weeks.
