Over $2 million raised at Center for Disability Services annual telethon

Center for Disability Services Telethon 2016

COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Through song, dance, tweet, and telephone, the Capital Region came through to support the Center for Disability Services annual telethon in its 57th year.

We raised over $2,172,000. That’s $100,000 more than last year. Every cent helps local people with disabilities reach their full potential.

It was a great night as NEWS10 ABC’s whole morning team was there, and our evening team too. It was certainly star-studded with musicians and athletes coming out for the cause.

Voice winner and hometown hero Sawyer Fredericks lent his voice to Sunday night’s cause. New York Giants running back Paul Perkins also lent a hand as he signed autographs with Yankee starting pitcher Luis Severino for $25 each.

From all of us here at NEWS10, thanks to all who donated to this year’s telethon.
