The Channel 3 Kids Camp 2012 Telethon was live Saturday morning in celebration of the camp's 102nd year. The camp provides accessible and affordable overnight camping experiences for lower income families, foster children and families in need.
Channel 3 Eyewitness News meteorologist and official Kids Camp spokesperson, Scot Haney along with Olessa Stepanova, hosted the event live on Channel 3 during "Eyewitness News This Morning" out of CPTV's studios in Hartford.
In just three hours, during the broadcast, volunteers at the telethon took calls for $70,001.45 worth of donations for the Channel 3 Kids Camp.
The money raised will go towards covering the cost of send local children to camp.
If you would like to donate, you can make a contribution online through PayPal on the camp's web site, www.channel3kidscamp.org. Checks can be mailed to: Channel 3 Kids Camp, 73 Times Farm Road, Andover, CT 06232.
