This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Jerry Lewis Telethon, a summer tradition that takes place each year on Labor Day Weekend. The Telethon, which has become an entertainment extravaganza broadcast across the nation, raises money to combat Muscular Dystrophy, a crippling disease which currently has no known cure.
The show, which is broadcast live from Las Vegas, features actor and comedian Jerry Lewis and also includes a multitude of other stars that will perform. The show begins on Sunday, September 5 at 9 PM and goes until Monday evening–a total of 21 hours. It will be broadcast on about 190 “Love Network” television stations and a live stream will also be available at www.mda.org.
The ChurchWyble Law Firm is proud to support the Jerry Lewis Telethon this year, as we are sponsoring the WLNS broadcast of the show. Nationwide, the telethon usually generates an outpouring of support from compassionate Americans. Last year, the Muscular Dystrophy Association received a total of $60 million from the telethon, which helped to support both service programs to help those affected by Muscular Dystrophy as well as research to find a cure.
