PLATTEVILLE (WKOW) -- The 39th annual Christmas telethon was held at UW-Platteville over the weekend. 

The telethon is held each year in support of Wisconsin Badger Camp.  This year's theme was "Once Upon a Time." 

This year's telethon featured live entertainment, an auction, interviews with Wisconsin Badger Camp patrons, staff and supporters, among other highlights. 

Colleen Garrity, UW-Plattefille Media Technology Services Director stated, "This year's production was a wonderful success.  We had great support from the community, many returning alumni, and raised enough money to send over 100 campers to camp next summer."

The telethon was a huge success, raising a total of $64,615. 

Wisconsin Badger Camp's mission is to serve people with developmental disabilities by providing quality outdoor recreational experiences.  The camp is located 10 miles south of Prairie du Chien.
