The Veterans Referral Center held their 10th Annual Veterans Day Telethon on Sunday, November 5, 2017. The event was broadcast locally in Paintsville, as well as live streamed nationwide over the internet. This is the first telethon benefiting the Veterans Referral Center since 2015. In addition to the telethon, soup bean dinners were also sold at the Paintsville Recreation Center, with those proceeds also benefiting the center. This is the only fundraiser the Veterans Referral Center does every year to raise money for operational costs. The telethon raised over $9,000.
