Telethon raises $113,697

April 22, 1998

The Tenth Annual Parent-Child Center Telethon raised $113,697, about 15,000 more than last year.

"We are extremely happy with the results," said Millie Lowman, executive director of the center.

The goal of Sunday's three-hour effort was to generate funds for and improve community awareness of the center's efforts to promote a healthy, safe and nurturing environment for at-risk children and families.

The center, which was established in 1983 by the Exchange Club of Washington County, provides prevention programs, advocacy services and parenting workshops.

The private, nonprofit agency is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of hundreds of parents and children, supporting parents' efforts to change negative family patterns and break the intergenerational cycle of child abuse.
