FORT WALTON BEACH — The 41st Annual Cox Cablethon, beginning 6 p.m. April 13 on Cox channel 6, benefits Covenant Hospice.

The month-long televised fundraiser — featuring stories of local patients and families touched by Covenant’s care — will offer opportunities to support the non-profit’s work in Okaloosa and Walton counties, including making donations to honor a loved one.

A Covenant Hospice premiere party is 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 13, at 229 Eglin Parkway N.E. The free event will feature cinema-style refreshments and possibly a flat-screen TV giveaway, organizers said.

The Cablethon auction — with jewelry, vacation packages, artwork and gift certificates from area retailers and restaurants — will occur online beginning April 13 at www.eventsatcovenant.org/cablethon.

For more information about the Cox Cablethon, or to support Covenant Hospice with a donation for the event, contact Jenni Perkins at 598-5003 or jenni.perkins@covenanthospice.org.


●The Cox Cablethon reportedly has raised more than $500,000 for the last 12 years.
