PEORIA — A telethon for the victims of Sunday's tornadoes will air Wednesday night on all Peoria-area television stations.

It will air 7 to 10:30 p.m. from the studios of WTVP, the public television station in Peoria, and WEEK, WHOI, WMBD and WYZZ will pick up parts of the broadcast during their news programs.

All money raised will go to the American Red Cross-Central Illinois Chapter for local tornado relief.

State and local dignitaries and news personalities will appear, and Heartland Festival Orchestra and Peoria Symphony Orchestra will perform. There also will be videos and in-studio interviews with survivors and emergency workers.
