Telemiracle 41 closes in Saskatoon with over $5 million being raised.
Telemiracle 42 will hit Regina next month and plans are being finalized with some of those plans being new.
A pre-show called “Countdown to Telemiracle” will go online starting two-and-a-half hours before the scheduled 9 PM start which will allow for more Saskatchewan performers to show their stuff.
While some of the traditional hosts like Beverley Mahood, Brad Johner and the Johner Boys and Jess Moskaluke will be back for the annual 20 hour telethon, this year will see an appearance by the legendary Canadian rock band “The Stampeders” and up and coming country artist Don Amero.
Nutrien will also be matching donations up to $150,000
Last year’s event raised just over five million dollars which has since its inception raised more than $100 million, which the Kinsmen Foundation of Saskatchewan uses to support people with physical and mental challenges.
Telemiracle 42 goes at the Conexus Arts Centre March 3 and 4.
