Channel 7 Perth’s annual telethon is on this week end. Since its first telethon in 1968 it has raised well in excess of $300 million including $38 million last year. The primary beneficiary of the telethon is our Perth Children’s Hospital and Telethon Kids Institute.
The Telethon Kids Institute is involved in research of childhood diseases,conditions and issues which not only help West Australian kids but kids throughout Australia and the rest of the world. If anyone is interested here is the link to Telethon Kids Institute.
Thanks to all the volunteers who will again make the 2019 telethon a huge success.
The list of overseas special guests who have helped over the years include Sammy Davis Jr, Stevie Wonder, Cliff Richard, Petula Clark, Harry Connick Jr, Celine Dion and many more.
