This year’s Comox Valley Child Development Association telethon raised a record amount. Executive Director Joanne Schroeder says people pledged more than $111-thousand. She says the Baynes Sound Lions brought in more than ever, and the donation from McHappy Days, and lots of big donations that really made a difference. “I think that we had lots of social media efforts and I think that payed off too with lots of individual donations,” Schroeder continues. The money raised from the telethon support programs run by the organization and the construction of a new building.
