F Hearty Donors* ~ Eagles Heart and Cancer Telethon PDC

Hearty Donors*

Hearty Donors was introduced for the Jan. 31, 2015, telethon in Prairie du Chien. It is for those organizations, businesses or individuals who give $1,000 or more.
The idea for the Hearty Donors classification came about when Jaaren Riebe, of the Prairie du Chien High School Class of 1986, approached telethon co-host Tom Stram about how the class could contribute a significant amount to the telethon.
“We would like to challenge other classes to participate in this sort of thing or somehow give back to the community,” Riebe stated. “It might be that your class reunion is at Homecoming and you decide to volunteer for one hour as a class before holding your reunion. Or maybe each person can give $1 and you pool your money to make a local donation.”
With the new program, those contributing $1,000—be it an advanced pledge or a donation the night of the telethon—will have their name listed on the Hearty Donors Wall at the telethon.
