30A TV will broadcast the Third Annual Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (ECCAC) Telethon live Thursday, Nov. 30, from 6 to 9 p.m. from AJ’s in Grayton Beach. Proceeds from the telethon will benefit ECCAC in Niceville and the Pierce Family Children’s Advocacy Center in DeFuniak Springs.
Redd and Beachcomber Music Award winner Luke Langford will host the telethon. With the purpose of creating awareness and raising funds for ECCAC, the telethon will feature interviews with locals, entertainment, information about ECCAC, and how viewers can make a difference.
ECCAC’s board of directors will be on hand answering phones and taking donations. Come out and order from the menu, and AJ’s will donate back a portion of the proceeds from the evening. Or purchase a $25 wristband for the appetizer bar and one FREE beverage (draft beer or soda). Wristband sales will be available at the door, or get yours early at www.eccac.org.
Viewers with Mediacom’s Ch 17 and Channel 8 Fairhope Communications can tune in. The telethon will also stream live at www.facebook.com/30atv.
Offering information and entertainment about beach style, 30A TV reaches homes and businesses in its viewing area of nine counties in Northwest Florida, from Sandestin to Alligator Point.
“We so appreciate that 30A TV is doing this telethon for our kids,” says ECCAC director of development Kim Henderson. “Please either come by AJ’s in Grayton Beach to watch the telethon, or tune in and help make a difference by making a contribution that will benefit children in Walton and Okaloosa County.”
Sponsors of the telethon at press time include Silver Sands Premium Outlets and Kiwanis of Freeport. Additional TV sponsorships are available starting at $250. To become a sponsor, contact Kim Henderson at 850-933-9237, ext. 283, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. The center’s child-friendly facilities house a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, and ECCAC staff and volunteers.
In the past 15 years, over 10,000 children have received more than 40,000 services to include mental health therapy, crisis intervention, referrals to other community providers, interviews and medicals. Services are provided at no cost by ECCAC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
