He is pictured singing to Mike Anthony, who took the stage with his fellow PdC firefighters Tim Deluhery Sr. (left) and Tim Deluhery Jr. (right). The 38th annual telethon was held Saturday evening at Bluff View School and broadcast live on local TV and online at Ustream.tv (where at one point, over 100 viewers were watching). Some $31,640 was raised this year toward heart disease and cancer research, bringing the 38-year total to nearly $693,000. The prestigious Danny Ruehlow Award was awarded to Pat Lenzendorf and Lindsey Ariss.Host Tom Nelson has become a recurring act on the Eagles Heart and Cancer Telethon in Prairie du Chien, with his songs on bended knee (usually “Happy Birthday”).
