Get ready for the 70th WHAS Crusade for Children, happening this weekend! It's an event that has been making a huge impact since 1954, and it's grown to become the second largest telethon in the entire nation. How incredible is that?
It's all about serving the special needs children and organizations across Kentucky and in over 50 southern Indiana counties. Firefighters and volunteers are do an incredible job of raising funds for these kids, and they play a vital role in making this event a success. So, if you're out and about this weekend, be sure to keep an eye out for them at intersections. They're working tirelessly to raise more than 50 percent of the donations each year.

The Crusade variety show, taking place at Old Forester's Paristown Hall at 7 pm on Saturday, promises to be a night of incredible entertainment. Master magician Lance Burton is ready to mesmerize us with his mind-boggling tricks. The Crashers, a phenomenal party band, are all set to get us on our feet and dancing the night away. Hosting this amazing event will be the dynamic duo of Terry Meiners and WHAS11's very own Shay McAlister. It will be an evening to remember!
