Prepare to dance and sing along with some of the Cape’s top entertainers during Housing Assistance’s 17th Annual Telethon for Hope on Tuesday, December 15, 6-8:30 pm. You can view next week’s telethon on local cable access channels 98 & 99 as well as on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel.
This year’s telethon kicked off on December 3rd with two special performances, one by Super Soulshine and another by motivational speaker and dance party enthusiast Jonathan Thompson of JT’s Chronicles.
Since then, we’ve been holding our 12 Days of Giving on our Facebook page, showcasing our work as well as our telethon sponsors, including Mid-Cape Home Centers, and phone fundraisers who are helping to make this year’s virtual event a success. During this time, you can do your part by making a donation to support this year’s telethon and ensure our neighbors in need have access to safe, stable housing this winter.
Next Tuesday will be the third year that Realtor Lisa Parenteau of eXp Realty has participated in the telethon by raising funds for Housing Assistance. “I think there is no time like the present to continue to not only support all the efforts of Housing Assistance Corporation, but to raise the visibility of their mission to keep people stably housed,” she said. “I’m happy to help out my neighbors in any way I can.”
Along with making a donation, you can support the Telethon for Hope in several ways, including:
- Like, join, and share the Telethon for Hope event on Housing Assistance’s Facebook page.
- Follow Housing Assistance on Facebook and like and share our posts, including the telethon broadcast, during the day-long fundraising drive on December 15th.
Additional performers who will participate in this year’s Telethon for Hope include singer-songwriter Monica Rizzio, musician Sarah Swain, singer David Ross, singer and actor Larry Marsland, and soft-rock duo David Bussiere and Troy Williams.
“This year’s telethon is really a way for the entire community to come together for a festive evening of music to express our gratitude, and of course, to donate and raise funds to ensure that everyone has a safe place to call home this holiday season,” CEO Alisa Magnotta said. “Through the pandemic, we’ve witnessed just how important housing is to keep all in our community safe and healthy. We want to make sure everyone has a chance to get involved in addressing this need.”
Larry Marsland is looking forward to performing at this year’s telethon. “It will be exciting and will be fun,” he said. “Best of all it’s to help an important organization that helps so many people.”
