THE RBEF TELETHON LIVE!
Since 1989, the Foundation has held a Telethon which has become the Foundation's premiere annual fundraising event. The Telethon is broadcast on RBTV, the school's educational TV & internet station. This fundraiser owes its success to hundreds of dedicated volunteers - students, alumni, community members, teachers, staff and friends - who have made the Telethon an RB tradition. In addition to talented performers, the day-long event has featured celebrities including Chicago radio personalities and municipal, state and federal officials. In its first year, the Telethon was awarded a John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award, the only high school event in the country to receive this prestigious honor. This year the telethon will air Saturday, March 2017, from 1-9 pm on RBTV.
