The countdown is on to the biggest fundraiser of the year in the province. The 2019 version of Telemiracle is under three weeks away and the final preparations are being finalized. 

Estevan's own Susan Colbow chaired Telemiracle 42 and will chair the event again next year. She's sitting on a shadow committee for this year's fundraiser. 

"Everything is going good, as far as I know," Colbow said. "I havent heard of any major hiccups, so I think it's all going great."

This year Telemiracle will be back in Saskatoon at the beautiful TCU Place downtown. Admission is free and there will be plenty to see and do on the weekend of March 2 and 3 in the Bridge City.

"If you're around it's always great to see people in the audience," Colbow noted. "It will be a good weekend."

The local Kinette group will be doing their part to help raise some money as well. They'll be out at the upcoming Estevan Bruins home game on Saturday, February 16 when they face the Weyburn Red Wings. Colbow, among other volunteers, will be out passing around the buckets and they'll also have teddy bears for kids.

One of the always entertaining aspects of Telemiracle is the musical acts they have lined up over the course of the two-day fundraiser. 

"We've got Beverly Mahood back. We've got Brad Johner and the Johner Boys, Chris Henderson the local boy. Jess Moskaluke is going to be back, Jeffrey Straker and his sister Jill Straker," Colbow explained.

It's a star-studded lineup for Telemiracle 43 and there many other peformers on the setlist as well. Fred Penner was one of the names Colbow mentioned as well. 

Colbow knows times are tough for some people, but they appreciate the continued support for Telemiracle. 

"We just hope the people will continue to support Telemiracle. the need is always there and it's getting greater and greater with the downturn in the economy," she said. "Hopefully anybody that is able to support will help us out and support the great cause that is Saskatchewan's charity."
