DCR On Set

RCN Lehigh Valley, an award-winning high-speed internet, digital TV and phone services provider, is teaming up with Dream Come True, a non-profit dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of children who are seriously, chronically or terminally ill in the Greater Lehigh Valley area, for its 33rd Annual Dream Come True Telethon and online auction.

Dream Come True will once again partner with RCN to produce and broadcast the Dream Come True Telethon which raises vital funds for the organization. Last year, the auction raised over $100,000.

RCN will air the program live on RCN TV (channel 4, HD 1004) on December 3, from 6 - 9 p.m., broadcasting from RCN’s TV studio in Bath, PA. This year’s hosts include RCN TV Sports Director and broadcaster, Gary Laubach; and RCN TV broadcasters Scott Barr and Devon Almonte, for a night of heartwarming entertainment including interviews with former dream recipients and involved community members.

The live online auction, which opened on November 19, features unique items such as autographed baseballs, 76ers tickets and more, donated by RCN’s partners and local supporters including HBO, iHeartMedia, Lehigh Valley Style and The Morning Call. Those interested in participating ahead of time can review items and make bids online through 8:30 p.m. on December 3.

“Dream Come True’s continued service of the Lehigh Valley community is one that mirrors RCN’s own efforts to give back and support our neighbors. It has been a privilege to continue our 33-year partnership with this organization and to help local children in any way we can,” said Sanford Ames Jr., general manager of RCN Lehigh Valley.

Rayann Vasko, executive director at Dream Come True, said: “As a non-profit, volunteer organization, we are so thankful for the continued support from our friends in the Lehigh Valley community. Our longstanding partnership with RCN is one that has helped the Telethon, our largest event, continue to exceed expectations year after year. We look forward to once again surpassing our fundraising goals and making dreams come true for the children of our community with help from our partners at RCN.”
