The 38th Annual Permian Basin Rehab Center Telethon raised the most money in it's history--with a whopping $965,987.
The money goes directly to help children and adults serviced by the center.
Featuring performances by local groups, interviews with patients at the center, the telethon is a yearly chance to feature the outstanding community work PBRC brings to the community.
“Really we are so humbled by the giving of our community, they recognize the need and then they come forward when we are here and we greatly appreciate that,” said Risse Rogers, Executive Director of the Permian Basin Rehab Center. “We appreciate all that CBS 7 has done for us and really I’m at a loss for words.”
The group is already gearing up for next year.
They say it's too early to talk about a fundraising goal--but that their record-breaking amount will push them to raise even more money next year.
The money raised goes towards filling the gap that insurance doesn’t cover for adults and children seeking their services.
