Vernon will be profiled during the Timmy’s Christmas Telethon.

Mayor Akbal Mund will represent the community during the Easter Seals fundraiser Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m. on Shaw TV and at www.timmys.org.

“He will be acknowledged along with his ball team for an extensive $1 million renovation they undertook this summer at Easter Seals Camp Winfield,” said Scott Gibney, with the B.C. Lions Society.

The telethon helps fund services, such as the Easter Seals House in Vancouver, which facilitates more than 1,000 bed nights annually from Vernon families,  and Easter Seals Camp Winfield.

Timmy’s Christmas Telethon will feature six hours of televised entertainment, special celebrity guests, and stories that introduce many B.C. families and the special services required by their children.

Since 1952, the B.C. Lions Society has assisted children with physical and cognitive disabilities. For more information, contact 604-873-1865 or visit www.timmys.org or www.lionsbc.ca.
