The annual United Cerebral Palsy telethon is this weekend, and everyone is encouraged to come out, have fun, and give. The UCP Telethon is an effort to raise money for the organization that helps more than 900 families cope with Cerebral Palsy. The fundraising drive started today with volunteers canvassing at storefronts and at stop signs. Executive Director Katrina Lipscomb says one of the best parts of the telethon is hearing what the charity means to the families. UCP hosts the telethon at the Anniston Meeting Center, where the public is invited to participate with a silent auction, refreshments, and more. The telethon is aired live here on TV 24. The event is on Saturday from 6:00 PM until 12:00 PM, and Sunday from noon until 6:00 PM. This is the 59th annual telethon for the organization.
