Sheriff Dave Wedding along with deputies and confinement officers from the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office manned the phone bank tonight at the annual Santa Clothes Club Telethon held at Washington Square Mall.

Sheriff Wedding presented Santa Clothes Club with a check for over $13,000 at tonight’s event. Sheriff Wedding explained, “This donation was possible thanks to generous support from Father Chris Forler and the parishioners of Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Councilman James Raben, 911 Gives Hope, the West Side Nut Club, and Pure International Teen Miss America Ashley Clark of Mater Dei High School.”

Last year, proceeds from the telethon clothed over 2,500 tri-state children. If you missed the telethon, you can still make a donation by clicking here.
