begathon(redirected from a begathon)
A lengthy televised effort to raise funds for a particular cause. A play on "telethon," the proper term for such an effort, and "beg." Can we change the channel? This begathon is annoying me.
n. a televised appeal for contributions, especially as conducted by U.S. public television stations. It seems like this station is one long begathon all year long.
