Projects & Events
Initially supporting only one charity through an on-air appeal, today TelethonSA supports up to 20 organisations annually with South Australia's original Home and Land Lottery.
Since TelethonSA's early beginnings and up to 2017 TelethonSA offered South Australian Charities a range of projects & events to participate in so that they could raise funds for their organisations. These ranged from the on-air Channel 9 Telethon, Miss Telethon Quest, The Seafood Affair, La Dolce Vita luncheon, Melbourne Cup Luncheon and the Wallis Movie Card to name a few.
Today we are unable to offer the same program as society's habits have changed, sponsors and supporters move on to try new ways of marketing their businesses to keep up with changing trends.
There are far more Charities in the not-for-profit sector than there were in years gone by, with that TelethonSA decided to keep the Home and Land Lottery as it has always been our 'flagship' fundraiser, at an affordable price for people to have the chance to win a home.
Our office is run with a small team of one full-time staff member supported by two part-time staff during the period that the lottery is running
TelethonSA is forever grateful to all those sponsors, supporters and the South Australian public for their generosity over our 59-year journey.
