Access Tucson fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

Budget cuts have really hurt the City of Tucson's Access Tucson public TV station.

Employees and volunteers continue to try and raise money to keep the station in tact. They had a three and a half hour long live telethon wednesday that featured local renowned musicians, activists, and personalities. During the telethon, there was also a live auction happening on the Access Tucson website.

"A whole lots of entertainment and asking people to call in to donate, asking people to support their community media center so that we'll have it in the future," said Lisa Horner of Access Tucson.

An encore presentation of the telethon will happen tomorrow at 7 P.M. On Cox channel 99, and Comcast channel 74.
