Jingle Bells organizers seek performers

The annual Jingle Bells Telethon season launches on Saturday, Nov. 11, with the first round of auditions for the five-hour fundraiser set for 3-6 p.m. at the Lake Geneva Christian Center, 605 Birch Ave. in Alexandria.

Run by the Alexandria Jaycees, the telethon seeks to raise money to buy toys and gifts for people in need during the holidays. Last year, it raised more than $115,000. Local performers sing, dance and contribute other entertainment.

The next audition will be 3-6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19, at the center, and the telethon will run 5-10 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9.

Requests for gift basket must be submitted by Dec. 4.
