Viewers helped raise $23,000 for an Eastern Kentucky drug treatment center.

The fifth annual Hope in the Mountains Telethon was held today at the WYMT Studios in Hazard. It featured entertainment from local musicians and artists.

One founder of the Hope House in Prestonsburg says it's all about giving women who come there a chance at a new life.

"If they're not in treatment, they're out on the street. Some of them was in jail or some of them could be dead right now, but we've given them a second chance," said Jimmy McCoy.

If you missed the telethon, you can still donate by calling 606-874-0240.
