PHOTOS: BCSF's Dollars for Scholars 2018 Telethon

By: Rich Hosford

There was a lot of action at BCAT’s studio on Wednesday night as the Burlington Community Scholarship Foundation hosted its 22nd Annual Dollars for Scholars Telethon.

During the telethon viewers were asked to phone in and make donations to support Burlington students seeking to further their education. There were also representatives from local businesses, groups and organizations who were on hand to make a donation and support the cause.

Burlington High School students were also there to work the phones and ask residents for donations to support scholarships. The students will continue to make calls over the next couple of days.

As a special bonus this year American Idol’s Sam Woolf was in the studio to play a couple of songs.

Since 1988 the BCSF has raised roughly $9.4 million to support Burlington scholars. Over the past 10 years they have given out over $300,000 per year and in the last two years have managed to give out over $360,000 in scholarships.
