Easterseals Telethon

Airing LIVE April 5, 2020, on ABC 25!

Save the date for the 43rd annual Easterseals Telethon!

The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center's pediatric therapy gym transforms into a television studio each year for the Easterseals Telethon! The show includes check presentations, a "phone bank" for called-in pledges, local groups competing in the "Dialin' & Duelin' for Dollars" phone area, client interviews, and more.

A highlight of the annual Telethon will be the personal stories of the 2020 local Easterseals Ambassadors, Sandy Ford and Ellie-Jane Pfingston. Be sure to watch at home or stop by and be part of the live audience! The public is invited to visit the Telethon in person from 12-6 p.m.

The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center serves approximately 5,100 children and adults with disabilities from a 30-county area of Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. No one is turned away due to inability to pay for medical rehabilitation therapy, which is offered on a sliding fee scale. All local contributions to the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center – including all Telethon pledges – stay in the community, underwriting therapy sessions for individuals who cannot otherwise afford these life-changing services at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.  Financial support is needed year round.  Donations can be made any time on our secure donation page; in person or by mail to Easterseals, 3701 Bellemeade Ave., Evansville, IN 47714; or by calling 812-479-1411.
