YOU really can make a difference, Comox Valley!
On Sunday, November 7th, 2021 the Comox Valley Child Development Association (CVCDA) will host their 46th CVCDA Children’s Telethon from 12 noon to 8 pm. The event will be a FREE event for the whole family in support of local child development.
Although the 2021 event will once again be all virtual, with no in house audience, supporters can still be part of the wonderful fundraising spirit of the Comox Valley. Supporters will be able to enjoy all of the live performances, prizes and guest appearances they’ve come to know through the years as the Telethon is broadcasted live from the Sid Williams Theatre via the CVCDA’s Broadcast Partner, Shaw Spotlight. Viewing will be available in real-time on your TVs or streaming devices from the comforts of your own home or where ever you are.
As always, participants can contribute to the CVCDA’s fundraising goals through a number of methods. After going 100% virtual last year, the committee decided to continue offering everything online through their website including an online donation form, silent auction bidding and 50/50 ticket sales: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/comox-valley-child-development-association/events/2021-cvcda-childrens-telethon-5050-raffle/
One of the highlights each year at the Telethon is the CVCDA Silent Auction. As of October 1st, the auction went live. There are now over 80 items and new items regularly being added leading up to Telethon. https://www.32auctions.com/CVCDAAuction2021
In the name of keeping the fundraising online and easily accessible to remote supporters, the CVCDA will once again be hosting their online 50/50 Raffle. Tickets went on sale October 15 for $5 each. There are a total of 4,000 tickets available for sale with a chance to win up to a $10,000 jackpot.
Both the auction bidding and 50/50 ticket sales will remain open throughout the Telethon broadcast. Auction bidding will end at 7pm on Sunday, November 7th. Then, the 50/50 draw will be broadcasted live at 7:45pm. All of these fundraising totals will be included in the total funds raised for the 2021 Telethon.
For those who would like to contribute by making a monetary donation, there are a number of ways to do so. Donors can phone in live to the Telethon to make a pledge to 250-334-9200 or call any time before or after the event to 250-338-4288. Online donations are also accepted anytime at CVCDA.CA.
The Comox Valley Child Development Association is a non-profit organization locally supporting children, youth and adults with diverse abilities and their families since 1974. In 2020, over 1000 Comox Valley children and their families used services at the CVCDA. All of the CVCDA’s 16 programs are designed to not only enrich the lives of the people who access these services but also to contribute to a stronger Comox Valley that welcomes and includes everyone who lives here.
