Easter Seals Ontario (Windsor-Essex) is pleased to announce that its signature event, the Windsor-Essex 39th Annual Telethon, will return to St. Clair College.
Production on this year’s Telethon has already begun with pre-recorded segments being done inside the Student Life Centre at St. Clair College.
The College’s student government Student Representative Council (SRC) has provided their Student Life Centre as studio space for this year’s telethon for a second year.
The St. Clair College Alumni Association and the College proudly join the SRC in sponsoring this annual event.
Kicking off fundraising for this year’s Telethon, The Toldo Foundation, a long-time supporter of Easter Seals, has once again made a significant contribution of $25,000.
The 39th Annual Easter Seals Ontario (Windsor-Essex) Telethon presented by the Toldo Foundation will broadcast during the afternoon feature presentations of the movies Ghostbusters 2 (on April 3) and Disney’s Tomorrowland (on April 10) from 3 - 6 p.m. on CTV Windsor.

Easter Seals Ontario is now in its 99th year of being a champion for children and youth with physical disabilities from all ethnic and religious backgrounds within the communities of Windsor-Essex and across the province.

Programs include funding for essential mobility and accessibility equipment, fully accessible summer camp opportunities at its two properties, Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden, online virtual camp programming, public awareness, and information resources.
Easter Seals provides its programs and services thanks to the generous support of its donors and sponsors.
