RCN Lehigh Valley, a four-time PCMag award-winning provider of high-speed internet, digital TV and phone services, is teaming up with Dream Come True, a non-profit dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of children who are seriously, chronically or terminally ill and reside in the Greater Lehigh Valley, PA area, for its 32nd Annual Dream Come True Telethon and online auction. Last year, the auction raised more than $88,000 for children in need.

RCN will produce and air the program live on RCN TV (channel 4, HD 1004) on December 4 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The telethon will be broadcast live from the RCN TV studio in Bath, PA and hosted by RCN TV Sports Director Gary Laubach. Laubach will be joined by Scott Barr and Vanessa Kieffer for a night of heart-warming entertainment including interviews with former dream recipients and involved community members.

The online auction features unique items donated by RCN’s partners and local supporters including Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers tickets, Blue Mountain Resort and Lehigh Valley Zoo passes, tech gifts, Ray-Ban sunglasses, autographed sports memorabilia and more. The auction opened on November 20 and will close at 8:00 p.m. on December 4. To review items and make bids, visit the live auction site today.

“Dream Come True’s commitment to the Lehigh Valley community aligns with RCN’s efforts to give back, be a good neighbor and help those in need. Partnering with this incredible organization for the last 32 years is invaluable to us and to the children,” said Sanford Ames, Jr., general manager of RCN Lehigh Valley.

Rayann Vasko, executive director for Dream Come True, said: “Dream Come True is a local non-profit, mostly run by volunteers. The Telethon is our biggest event of the year and without hard-working and passionate people supporting us, it wouldn’t be possible. All of the money raised will go directly to our program services including dream fulfillment, scholarships and funerals. We’re always inspired by the support of the Lehigh Valley community and look forward to making more dreams come true for children in need with the help of RCN.”
