2nd Annual Cancer Center Telethon

March 23, 2005 – The second annual Cure for Cancer Telethon to assist in the funding of the Charlotte Kimelman Cancer Institute will be aired live on Innovative Cable TV2 on Saturday, April 2, 2005 as well as on radio stations WVWI (Radio One) and ZBVI (Tortola). The telethon will be held from 6 pm to midnight. The goal of this year's telethon is $300,000.
The telethon will feature comedian Hazelle Goodman from New York as the celebrity host. The telethon will also feature appearances from local celebrities Irvin "Brownie" Brown, Leo Moron, Addie Ottley, Reginald "Ras Regg" Martin, Julian Baa, Sheldon Turnbull, Raul Carrillo, Jeanette Millin, Diana Parker, Mary Gleason, Lee Carle, Sandra Goomansingh, Dave "Super Dave" McDermott, Monica Jonagin, Alex "Good News" Randall, Cherrie Boynes and Reny Roker.
"The Charlotte Kimelman Cancer Institute represents the future of quality health care delivery in the territory," said Schneider Chief Executive Officer Rodney Miller. "While much has been accomplished in the months since the historic groundbreaking of the center, financially there remains much to do. We are hoping the community will continue to rally around our efforts, just as they did overwhelmingly during last year's telethon."
"Once completed," Miller continued, "this center of excellence will be poised to treat cancer patients not only from the Virgin Islands, but from other Caribbean islands as well."
