The Easter Seals Ontario Telethon

The owner of Frizzell Family Dental, James Frizzell, DDS, is a dentist in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Prior to opening his business in Niagara Falls, James Frizzell, DDS, served for eight years in the Canadian Forces. When not managing his business, Dr. James Frizzell is involved with various charities, including the Easter Seals.

The regional branch of Easter Seals, Easter Seals Ontario is dedicated to providing children with physical disabilities the opportunity to achieve independence and belonging in society.

Each year, Easter Seals arranges a telethon to raise money for the various programs and services available to some 20,000 children with disabilities in the province. The 33rd telethon took place in early April of 2016 and was held in six communities across Ontario, each of which raised six-digit sums for the charity.

The telethons, which this year took place in Toronto, Peterborough, Windsor, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, and the South Eastern Ontario area, raise both funds and awareness, and feature guest appearances by Easter Seals Ambassadors and families the charity has helped as well as entertainment from dancers and musicians.
