Telemiracle 42 will feature returning performers

There is a lot planned for Telemiracle 42, which is taking place on March 3 and 4 at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina. The show will run for 20 hours beginning at 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 and admission to the event is free.
There will be over 60 performances by talent across Saskatchewan at the event. Telemiracle is thrilled to welcome back The Hunter Brothers, Jess Moskaluke, Sask Express, and Big Daddy Tazz.
Also, returning are: Chris Henderson, Brad Johner & The Johner Boys, Beverley Mahood, Jeffery Straker, and Jill Straker, who regularly participate in the event. New National Cast members include Don Amero, The Stampeders, and TSN Sports personality Glen Suitor.
New for Telemiracle 42 is an online pre-show, Countdown to Telemiracle. The pre-show will broadcast live from the Conexus Arts Centre starting at 6:30 p.m. It will feature more great Saskatchewan Talent.
“We’re thrilled with this new addition to Telemiracle weekend,” said Jesse Shkuratoff, Public Relations Chair for Telemiracle 42. “Our Saskatchewan Talent are really popular. This pre-show gives us a chance to highlight even more performers.”
During Telemiracle 42, if someone missed a performance on the broadcast they can watch it on the Telemiracle YouTube Channel. Every Saskatchewan Talent performance will be available on YouTube within in an hour of the performance.
There will be a new look to Telemiracle 42, which includes the Telemiracle Teddy.
“We decided it was time to refresh our brand,” remarked Cindy Xavier, Executive Director of the Kinsmen Foundation. “Our new look is fresh but familiar.”
The new branding includes a website refresh as well as a new look for all of Telemiracle’s marketing materials. Along with the new brand, Telemiracle Teddy is getting a new shirt after more than two decades. Teddy has decided to get rid of his familiar red shirt he’s had since 1994. Teddy is now sporting a purple shirt with a fresh new logo.
The Kinsmen Foundation through Telemiracle raises millions of dollars to help people and organizations with medical expenses and equipment they can’t afford. Every year, people and businesses give to Telemiracle from every part of Saskatchewan. The donations Telemiracle receives are given back to groups and individuals all over Saskatchewan.
“I’ve been fortunate to see firsthand how gifts from Telemiracle help people every day,” remarked Susan Colbow, Chair for Telemiracle 42. “Thousands of individuals benefit from Telemiracle’s help all over Saskatchewan, including in my hometown of Estevan.
Nutrien is excited to team up with the Saskatchewan performers who will be on stage during the Countdown to Telemiracle and throughout Telemiracle itself. Nutrien, a new company formed from the merger of PotashCorp and Agrium, is continuing PotashCorp’s long-standing tradition of matching contributions to Telemiracle. Nutrien will match all money raised by Saskatchewan Talent, up to $150,000.
