Facts about the Telethon of Stars:

TITLE: Annual Lions Club/WPSD Local 6 Telethon of Stars.

DAY/TIME: Sat/Sun, 8th & 9th of November
10 p.m. Sat to 1:00 p.m. Sun (15 hrs.)

LOCATION: Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center in Paducah, KY.

SPONSORS: The Paducah Lions Club and WPSD Local 6. Lions in each state work on fund-raising for their particular state, and the money donated from each state stays in that state to benefit the local center.

BENEFICIARY: Clients of the four centers, one in each state. Easter Seals West Kentucky in Paducah; T.L.C. of Southern Illinois; UTM Infant Stimulation Program-Martin, Tennessee; and Easter Seals Southeast Missouri. These centers deal with disabled children and adults. All of the money raised by the Telethon goes directly to these centers.

DETAILS: This is primarily an entertainment and information show, with 15 continuous hours of live music with features, client interviews, and officials of the four centers and area Lions clubs interspersed. The Telethon of Stars is one of the longest running, locally produced Telethons in the USA and is telecasted in the 80th largest DMA market in the USA (Paducah, KY-Cape Girardeau, MO-Harrisburg/Marion, IL).

TOTALS: The Telethon of Stars has now raised over 23.5 Million Dollars over the past 56 years. We believe it to be among the top telethons in per-capita donations, and ranks as the #1 local Lions Club fund-raising project.
