Telemiracle 44 is another success

Telemiracle 44 is in the books, and by all accounts it was a success.

$5,523,472 was raised to help people in Saskatchewan cover unexpected medical expenses.

The 20-hour- telethon saw long time cast members like Beverley Mahood, Brad Johner, and Jeffrey Straker return, as well as some new faces in the rock band Toque, and Canadian Country Music Hall of Famers, the Good Brothers.

Over 80 acts from all corners of the province kept the Conexus Arts Centre crowd entertained throughout the broadcast, driving in pledges.

Nutrien matched all donations made by performers, totalling $159, 161.

All money raised stays in the province and helps the people of Saskatchewan.

“I am thrilled and humbled by the generosity of Saskatchewan people that supported Telemiracle this year,” says Telemiracle 44 Chair Jesse Shkuratoff. “Once again, Telemiracle brought our province together and the impact of these donations will be felt across Saskatchewan.”

The logo for Telemiracle 45 was unveiled and it focused on family time and watching the annual telethon all night long.

Donations are still being accepted if you missed out on calling during the broadcast.

Telemiracle 45 takes place March 6-7 2021 at TCU Place in Saskatoon.
