Telethon Raises Record Amount

November 21, 2016


The 37th Annual Share-A-Smile telethon presented by Shaw closed today with an astounding, record breaking total. $74,327.91 was raised, surpassing the goals of the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre. 


OSNS executive director Manisha Willms: “Our incredible success today exceeded expectations. The support of community donors, volunteers and staff is the cornerstone of the event. We had excellent panels and a fantastic day. But the ultimate importance of today is that it changes the lives of children. We thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts.” 


OSNS board chair Tyler Chick: “As a board member, it truly warms my heart to see how many community partners come out to support this event, whether it is goods and services, time spent, or donations over the phone. What we have here is truly amazing.”


OSNS works to maximize the potential of all children, and supports over 1200 children annually, many of whom face developmental challenges. The Centre operates early treatment services, autism diagnosis and treatment, family support, Kinderplace Preeschool, and KinderBear Daycare. Treatment services are delivered at the centre and throughout the South Okanagan Similkameen.
