PARC will host its 22nd Annual Anniversary Cablethon from 10 a.m. to noon, live, on Saturday, Sept. 27, on Comcast Cable Channel 8.

Hosted by PARC’s Executive Director Susan Limongello, this broadcast is PARC’s opportunity to celebrate its commitment to providing exceptional services for children and adults with developmental disabilities and to applaud the agency and staff’s many accomplishments. The event, first broadcast in 1992, has been PARC’s single largest fundraiser each year for the past 22 years.

This year’s broadcast will include discussion of current issues in the area of developmental disabilities, guest interviews, visits from local leaders and members of the business community, and PARC participants and family members.

Recognized as a 501(c)(3) in 1954, PARC provides programming and advocacy for over 650 children and adults with developmental disabilities within Putnam County and in southern Dutchess and northern Westchester counties. Money raised at PARC’s events, including the annual Cablethon, directly benefits and impacts people with disabilities.

Pledges and donations may be made in several ways for this year’s PARC Cablethon. Visit the PARC website for details at PutnamARC.org. To learn more about PARC and the services and advocacy provided, call 845-278-PARC or log onto PutnamARC.org.
