The Chattooga County Shrine Club has announced their goal for the 2008 Shrine Telethon to be held next weekend September 6th and 7th. Local Shriners are hoping to raise $90,000 for their annual fundraiser. Last year Chattooga County Residents gave $88,000 to the local Shrine Club during the telethon. This years telethon was moved from Memorial Day weekend to next weekend. You can watch the telethon on SKY 21 Television or on the Charter Cable System on Channel 5. AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio encourages all of our listeners to support the Shrine Telethon next weekend. Shriners operate 22 hospitals across the nations with an annual budget of $826 Million paying for the care of burned and crippled children.
