Child ambassador Tori Boelk and her family celebrated the poster launch for the Comox Valley Child Development Association’s annual Children’s Telethon 2011.
The colourful, eye-catching poster will soon appear around the Comox Valley to promote next month’s telethon, now in it 36th year.
Each year, the Comox Valley Child Development Association asks a local family if they would like their child to be the child ambassador for the telethon.
The child ambassador is featured in posters and represents the hundreds of children and families who receive services at the CVCDA in Courtenay.
Tori’s family didn’t hesitate, saying, “The Child Development Association has done so much for Tori, she is really happy to do this in return. We have been involved with the CVCDA since Tori came home from the hospital. To have services like this, here in the Comox Valley, is amazing.”
Mark Nov. 6 on your calendar for this year’s telethon at the Old Church Theatre in Courtenay. It’s the CVCDA’s largest fundraiser of the year.
