People TV Atlanta Announces 2nd Annual Live On-Air Fund-a-Thon in Conjunction With Georgia Gives Day

In an effort to raise needed funds, People TV will air the 2nd annual live on-air "Fund-a-Thon" in conjunction with Georgia Gives Day

People TV Atlanta is participating in Georgia Gives Day, on Thursday, November 12, 2015. Georgia Gives Day is a 24-hour online “flash mob” of giving to support non-profit organizations across Georgia.

People TV – Cable Channel 24 on Comcast - will air ten straight hours of live programming simply titled “People TV Fund-a-Thon” from 12pm EST to 10pm EST on Thursday, 11/12/15 featuring live and taped performances from celebrity and local artist, interviews with leaders of local non-profits, screenings of vintage and new television programs as well as prize give aways throughout the broadcast. People TV hopes the Fund-a-Thon will raise additional public funding to help keep this community-programmed entity afloat. The Fund-a-Thon will also air via live stream at http://www.peopletv.org/Livestream.

“Georgia Gives Day 2014 was our 1st Annual Fund-a-Thon effort and we were able to raise $1,600.00,” said Teddy Lewis, People TV Managing Director. “With continued support from our individual, community and corporate partners and increased engagement from Atlanta area residents, we hope to continue building on the momentum from 2014 and look forward to reaching new heights in 2015."
