MDA Labor Day Telethon

All weekend long, Americans joined the cause that Jerry Lewis has championed for more than 40 years.

The preliminary figures are in on how much was donated to the MDA Telethon.

Nationwide, contributions and pledges from this year's Labor Day event totaled close to 60 million dollars. That's just half a million less than last year.

The record year was 2008, when 65 million dollars was donated.

In our area, you donated 183, 279 dollars.
