The local Chattooga County Shrine club continues their annual telthon, an event that is in its 27th year here in Chattooga County.

The Shriners are looking to raise money for burned and crippled children.  Local Shriner Pete Denson told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio last week that all of the money that is raised will go to the Shriner’s Hospitals for children.

It is estimated that in the past 27 years Chattooga Countians have donated over $3 million dollars to the Shriners Hospitals through the Chattooga County Shrine Club Telethon. 

The event will last this evening until donations stop.  You can attend the telethon at the Dandy Denson Shrine Auditorium in Summerville or watch it on SKY 21 Television.
