Heart Helps Easter Seals Telethon
For another wonderful year, Heart Technologies was able to aid Easter Seals in their fundraising telethon on March 5, 2016. The event ran from 6–10pm at Par-A-Dice Hotel in East Peoria, just down the street from our headquarters. In addition to volunteers making calls and collecting pledges, the show featured Easter Seals families who shared their stories of hope, progress, and success achieved through the efforts of Easter Seals. This program also aired live on WMBD.
Heart Technologies has been raising money to donate to this event through employee fundraisers such as the cookie bake, football squares, and office olympics. Heart was able to assist in setting up the telephony needs for this telethon. Even a few of Heart’s own employees volunteered at the telethon calling for donations.
The telethon helped raise a record amount of $2,605,970 for Easter Seals and all its services. Congratulations to such a great cause!
