Wynonna In Lions Telethon Concert Tonight
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Tonight's Paducah Lions Club Telethon of Stars concert brings some big-name country stars to the Carson Center.

Wynonna and The Big Noise will headline tonight's performance, with special guests country star Collin Raye and Craig Wayne Boyd, who won Season 7 of NBC's "The Voice."  

Tickets are on sale, and range from $15 - $35 each. Tickets may also be purchased over the phone at 270-450-4444 or at the door.

Money raised this year will be divided between three organizations; TLC of Southern IL, Easter Seals West Kentucky, and the UT-Martin Infant Stimulation Program. 

The celebration concert is an added fundraiser for the telethon, which in recent years has changed from an all-night format to a shorter length.

Lions Club Telethon Chair Liz Mason said, "There have been some growing pains as we kind of eased out of the all-night format. With all of the competition on television, donations were down in that overnight hour. So, we've revamped the idea of the telethon, but kept the core and the heart of it, which is raising money for children and adults with special needs."

The 62nd Telethon of Stars will air on WPSD on November 17-18. This year, along with the open phone lines, a texting option and online donations, there will be a donation drop off site and a live watch party.
