The folks of greater Davenport are the greatest! Our 1998 Labor Day Telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association was a huge success, breaking all records in pledges and contributions.
I'm enormously grateful to everyone in the Davenport area who participated in local MDA special events, phoned in a pledge to the telethon broadcast on WQAD-TV, Channel 8, or helped in any other way. You've made an important difference which I hope you'll continue year-round with volunteer help and financial support. Please, call your local MDA office to find out how you can stay involved.
To everyone who made the 1998 telethon a knockout, from the bottom of my heart, thanks!
Jerry Lewis, national chairman, Muscular Dystrophy Association
