The United Way Estevan's Telethon is well underway, with entertainment from school students and others in the community.
The Telethon started at 8 a.m. Friday morning. Local school students and other people from the community have been lending their talents to the broadcast.
People from the community have responded with their support, and as of 1 p.m., the broadcast had raised more than $34,000.
The fundraiser will continue until 5 p.m. on Saturday evening. This year's goal is $340,000 for the United Way's 15 member agencies and community partners.
The telethon is happening at the Royal Canadian Legion's Estevan branch. It can be watched live on Access Channel 7 or www.unitedwayestevan.com.
The Mercury will have more details as they become available.
