This year marks the 75th annual Jingle Bells Telethon. It is a combination of 5-hours of free entertainment and a weekend of giving for families in need throughout the Lakes Area. The telethon itself will take place Saturday, December 8th from 5-10pm at the Alexandria Area High School Performing Arts Center.
Auditions for the telethon will be held in mid-November. Go to the Jingle Bells Foundation website for more details on this and all things connected to the telethon and its efforts.
TBD – Distribution of the contributions (discussions on whether to continue traditional food/toy baskets or to switch to a different gifting model that both helps and is sustainable)
