Telethon features Brian McBride among others

The RBHS telethon is taking place this upcoming Saturday, October 23. The RBEF has been hosting an annual telethon every year to raise money for clubs and the school since 1989. This year they hope to raise $25,000.

The telethon will be broadcast on RBTV and will have skits and musical performances. Catch these events live: Men’s Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Poms, Riverside Repertory Dance Company, Dancing with the Staff, Madrigals, and the bands Velocity and Kings of the Nighttime World. The telethon will be taking place in the auditorium and the RBTV studio.

This year there will be an auction for goods. Chicago Fire player Brian McBride will have autographed cleats from his tenure with the English Premiere league. There will also be many more gifts for purchase. 

Gary Prokes, who will be heading the television operation said, “I’m very positive (about the telethon). We are usually pretty close or we exceed the goal.”
