PRIDE Telethon

The annual PRIDE Telethon is a highly anticipated community event televised on the local Comcast Channel 17 and live from the Smithfield Firehall. The 2019 event raised over $170,000! The event combines a three day auction with a talent day in which many local organizations and individuals are featured. In addition, there are many special activities sponsored by businesses, individuals, organizations and schools in the days leading up to event. In the past, this event has raised approximately one-third of the annual operating budget for Huntingdon County PRIDE.

The 2020 Telethon dates are September 16, 17, 18, & 19.  For this Telethon, we will be having the auction spread out over all 4 days.
