Quebec City, May 23, 2019 — The largest display of solidarity for sick children and their families in Quebec will be held on Sunday, June 2 at the 32nd Opération Enfant Soleil Telethon. Broadcast on TVA from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., the Telethon will highlight the courage of all children affected by illness, especially the 17 Enfants Soleil, who come from every region of Quebec. Accompanied by their families, they will be at the heart of the action and the emotional live broadcast.
The main hosts, Annie Brocoli and Maxime Landry, will be surrounded by a team consisting of Camille Dg, Alain Dumas, Anick Dumontet, Philippe Fehmiu, Roseline Filion, Louis-Georges Girard, Josée Lavigueur, Arthur L’aventurier, Michaël, Alex Perron, Annie-Soleil Proteau, Charles-Antoine Sinotte, and Saskia Thuot and Érik Caouette from 2Frères.
From the very beginning of the Telethon, the children’s favourite artists will sing for their great enjoyment: Arthur L’aventurier, Fredo le magicien, Les Petites Tounes, Théo, and many others. In the afternoon and evening, many artists’ talents will serve the cause, including 2Frères, Brigitte Boisjoli, Jean-François Breau, Roxane Bruneau, Nicola Ciccone, Lara Fabian, Marie-Eve Janvier, Geneviève Jodoin, Robby Johnson, The Frienzz and MARVL, King Melrose, Mario Pelchat, Ginette Reno, Nathalie Simard, Martine St-Clair, and Marie-Élaine Thibert.
