**A Stream’Athon is similar to a telethon; we’ve invited various genres of performers to donate a few minutes of their time and talent to entertain the public while their MC asks for donations.

The unique aspect of the event is that instead of broadcasting on television the entire event will be streamed live on Facebook! There will be over 30 performers gracing the stage with an audience of over 15,000 people that will be watching throughout the world!

THIS YEAR’S FUNDRAISING TARGET IS: $10,000

The proceeds will benefit Desta’s 2017 Mental Health, Distance Education, and Justice programs.
