The San Diego Area Alumni Chapter answered phones live on-air for the HOPE Telethon November 8th to support shelter pets and programs at the Helen Woodward Animal Center (www.animalcenter.org) . This was our second year volunteering to takes pledges from KUSI-TV viewers supporting the Helen Woodward Animal Center and it was a day of fun and confetti!
Last year began with four BGSSDers, but this year as the word went out how much was raised and the fun we had together, that we had a merry band of ten. Mike Arms, CEO, asked if we would come back next year and even offered us a back scenes tour at the shelter. Of course we would love to return and bring even more to help this awesome charity.
