When camp sessions and a charity event don’t go according to plan, what do the donors of Victory Lane do? They gather for a virtual telethon! The Victory Lane community gathered for an eight-hour online telethon featuring Victory Families, Partner Families, and other supporters from all over the country.
The telethon streamed live on Facebook and YouTube and included stories about Victory Lane along with a variety of people sharing their talents including musical offerings, jokes, a magic show, and even a hand lettering demonstration. The telethon had approximately 4,000 viewers located in 14 different states.
“What a great day and a successful event,” says Tiffanny Youngquist, Victory Lane Assistant Director. “Thank you to all those who participated in any way. You have brought community and support to the lives of children with special needs.”
Alex Carey, a Victory kid, kept the laughs going with his hilarious jokes. The Brown family, Victory partner, sang together while playing guitar. Tiarra Taylor, Ms. Indiana, also sang for telethon viewers. Hosts included Brett Fischer, Paige Fischer, and Melissa Youngquist.
The telethon was a true reflection of the willingness of our donors to invest in Victory Lane in a new and innovative way. A huge “thank you” to our telethon sponsors and those who donated during the event. Your generosity totaled to $12,355!
