HUMBOLDT — Four acts from Humboldt will perform at this year’s Telemiracle.
The 20-hour telethon, hosted by Saskatchewan Kin at Regina’s Conexus Arts Centre, will be on March 7 and 8.
Performing at the main show will be A-List Dance and Acrobatics, Hope Beggs, Megan Brooks, and Ray Whitton and Morris Matieshen.
Ellen Michel, who lives in Saskatoon but is originally from Humboldt, will perform during the Countdown to Telemiracle streamed live on Telemiracle’s YouTube channel starting March 7.
“From the biggest cities to the smallest towns, Telemiracle brings the province together to help our friends and neighbours to improve their independence and quality of life,” said Jesse Shkuratoff, Telemiracle 44’s chair. “Every year, Saskatchewan gives to Telemiracle from its heart and this year we need Saskatchewan’s help more than ever.”
This year, the Kinsmen Foundation expects to receive over 1,000 applications for assistance from Saskatchewan residents. Last year, the telethon raised more than $5.6 million
This year’s National Cast includes returning stars such as Beverly Mahood, and Saskatchewan’ own Brad Johner and Jeffery Straker, amongst others.
