Personalities from Seven network shows, along with the best Australian talent are booking their flights to Perth to take part in Australia's biggest annual Telethon on Channel Seven over the weekend of November 13 & 14.
The Potbelleez, Jessica Mauboy, Australia's Got Talent winners Justice Crew, Marcia Hines, Michael Paynter, Damien Leith Wes Carr, Stan Walker and Bobby Andonov are also packing their bags for Perth to spend the weekend helping to raise money for Telethon.
Since 1968, Telethon has raised over $94 million for beneficiaries like the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, headed up by Professor Fiona Stanley and Princess Margaret Hospital. In 2009 there were around twenty other beneficiaries as well.
Telethon General Manager Steve Mummery says in 2010 the people of Perth will help Telethon obtain an extraordinary achievement. "This year we want to crash through the $100 million milestone – something we've been aiming for since day one back in 1968".
There will be a huge opening show featuring Jessica Mauboy, Justice Crew and Marcia Hines, along with most of the other stars who are in town for the event and The Potbelleez are flying in to Perth especially for the closing show on Sunday night.
