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 Cash Raffle Extravaganza will air Saturday, April 9th from 5-9 pm on RBTV.
