Kitimat telethon set to captivate and entertain this Sunday
Annual variety show will feature Juno-winning performer Norman Foote as main act
The Annual Community Telethon (ACT), a beacon of local philanthropy and community spirit, is gearing up for its latest rendition this Sunday, Oct 15. The event promises an abundant mix of entertainment, food and community engagement, all in the spirit of bolstering local causes and ensuring long-term community resilience.
“This is something that people really appreciate and support,” said Sanne Hogenbirk, this year’s telethon coordinator. “Similarly, this is true with the businesses that step forward each year too, because everyone knows the money goes to a lot of good local causes.”
This year, the telethon is especially thrilled to feature Juno Award winner Norman Foote as the main act. Foote is renowned for his engaging musical and comedic conversations, intertwining songs, storytelling, and a flurry of “props with an attitude.”
An array of back-to-back performances from local artists are also ready to take the stage.
Food vendors, a kids’ zone, and a cake draw are again on the roster, as is a special coloring contest for the little ones during Foote’s performance times to add some youthful creativity to the occasion.
