Moonshine Mollys on SHAW for the CDC TELETHON THIS SUNDAY

We, Moonshine Mollys are so very excited to be a part of the

Entertainment for the following event!


in partnership with Shaw TV & The Port Theatre

September 29th, 2013
12PM to 8PM

We invite families, individuals, businesses, and service groups to participate in our Telethon broadcast by making a donation live at the Port Theatre and doing a brief interview on air if desired, or call in your donation during the show from the comfort of your own home. All donations are tax deductible. The toolkit below provides fundraising ideas and tips on making your campaign successful and fun.

A family BBQ sponsored by the Kinsmen will be held outside the Theatre, along with cotton candy and Balloon Artist – Crazy Chris bringing extra fun to this great day! If you would like to participate, please contact:, (250) 753-0251 (Ext: 264).

The Nanaimo Child Development Centre provides services to nearly 1800 children annually and we presently have 326 children on our wait list – waiting up to 9 months for some services (particularly occupational therapy & speech therapy). All funds raised at this event will go towards the much needed programs and services provided at the Centre.

telethon_puffin.jpgIn support of the Telethon, Vancouver Island watercolour artist Duane Vensel & the NCDC are offering a personally signed free 12X18 quality art reproduction of ‘The Pacific Puffin’ (unframed) to anyone (individual, community/service group or corporate donor) who makes a $100 or more donation during the Telethon. Following the Telethon – until December 15th – 20% of the purchase price of any sales made on Duane’s website ( will also be donated back to the Centre.

Why the connection to the Centre? The NCDC played a big role in Duane’s great-nephew, Zachary’s, life. Born very prematurely, complications left Zachary deaf, legally blind and with severe cerebral palsy. Zachary and his family received services from the Centre which made a huge difference in his quality of life. Little Zachary passed away February 2012 at nine years of age and Duane felt this was one way that he could pay tribute to this special little guy and the great work the Centre did and does for families in similar situations.

Individual Donors of $20 or more will receive one entry each for the following “Donor Prize Giveaways”- (Donations made between 12PM – 7:30 PM qualify for entry). NOTE: Our grateful thanks to all corporate and service group donors, the prize giveaways are limited to individual donors only.
