Festival International hold first ever telethon

Posted: Updated:

Festival International partnered with Delta Media for its first ever Téléthon du Festival.

Monday's telethon, organizers say, is dedicated to raising money for Festival 2018's Amis du Festival campaign.

The event held an auction that included live music performances, 7 historic Festival video compilations, and appearances from past presidents and founding members. Organizers say it is a reflection on the magic and evolution of Festival International. 

Live performances at the telethon included Zachary Richard, Sweet Cecilia and Feufollet Trio. The event was held live from 6:00 pm to 10:00 on KDCG.

Festival organizers worked the phones throughout the night to encourage old and new Amis Du Festival to donate and organizers say it's crunch time.

"It's eight weeks out. It's time for everyone to start thinking about it and it is very important we collect support via our Amis program," said Tom Brown President of Festival International
