They’ve helped upwards of 800 children, youth and families, and now the Comox Valley Child Development Association is getting ready for their annual telethon with the goal of helping even more.
The 39th annual CVCDA is happening this Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre, and features a variety of local entertainers.
Proceeds support local children with special needs and their families.
For the past 15 years, the event — which will be broadcast live on Shaw and the CVCDA website — has been held at the Old Church Theatre, but last year moved back to its previous home at the Sid Williams.
It raised more than $77,000 last year.
