It is with deep disappointment that the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center is announcing a modification to our 40th Annual Live Telethon event. The Center’s top priority is the health and safety of the children we serve. With the unpredictability of the current health climate, we feel it is in the best interest of the children we serve to cancel most live events scheduled at the Sikeston High School Field House on March 21st and 22nd. However, we are going to continue our fundraising efforts in the form of a Virtual Telethon. We will be live-streaming entertainment, child interviews, and VIP panels from the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center on March 21st from 9 am – 5 pm. If you have not yet, please make your donation by texting KRCC to 91999. Thank you so much!
UPDATE: It is with great sadness that the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center has made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining Telethon events scheduled for March 21, 2020. These events include the pancake breakfast, the 5K walk/run, the blood drive and our live telethon streaming event. Refunds for the 5K will be available. Please know that these are difficult times, and our decision was based on keeping our patients and staff safe.
