You did it Queensland!
Another record-breaking result for Telethon
Thank you so much!
The amazing, generous spirit of Queenslanders shone brightly once again at the Channel Nine Telethon in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation. Community and business partners, schools, families, young and old all contributed to raising an incredible $12,663,951for sick kids and their families.
The money raised will go a long way to help the Children’s Hospital Foundation work wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research and providing an incredible array of patient and family support programs.
Now in its fifth year, the Channel Nine Telethon has raised over $58,000,000, an incredible achievement and proof that Queenslanders are some of the most giving people in the country. Thank you, we couldn’t do it without you!
At the Channel Nine Telethon live broadcast, the sold-out studio audience partied the evening away with favourite celebrities such as Sylvia Jeffreys, Karl Stefanovic, The Block’s Shelly Craft and David Campbell. Nova 106.9’s breakfast crew, Ash, Kip and Lutsy alongside sporting legends Sam Thaiday and Wally Lewis were amongst a host of personalities taking your generous donations over the phone.
Pop sensation Samantha Jade, Luke Kennedy from The Voice, The Potbelleez, Busby Marou and Glenn Shorrock all took to the stage to entertain the audience and bring everyone to their feet to dance the night away.
Next door to the broadcast, 1000 special guests enjoyed a night of nights at the circus themed, “It’s Showtime” Coffee Club Ball. Once again, this now legendary event raised an incredible amount of money in support of Queensland’s sick kids and their families.
Thank you to everyone who donated and a special thanks to our presenting partners, Woolworths, Golden Casket, Queensland Government, The Coffee Club, Bank of Queensland, The University of Queensland and Sunsuper, and our media partners, GOA and Nova 106.9. Your support will help us to work wonders for sick kids every day.
