The Texas Boys Ranch 40th anniversary telethon fundraiser will be held Saturday, August 8, at Frenship High School. It will be live on FOX34, starting at 6 p.m.

The telethon is the Boys Ranch's biggest fundraiser of the year, and FOX34 staff will be joining community volunteers to answer phones and accept donations on behalf of the organization. The proceeds will be going towards facility improvement, maintenance, upkeep, and for the ranch's continued operation. 

Traci Cheek, with the Boys Ranch, was on the News@Nine Sunday, and said the event is full of good stories and the good work the organization does.
