MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation is pleased to host the fourth edition of its Radio-Telethon on Wednesday March 13 in partnership with rights holders TSN RADIO 690, 98.5 FM and RDS. Presented in collaboration with Activis, Bell, Desjardins and La Presse, the event aims at supporting the efforts of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation to provide a brighter and healthier future for children in need, and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle among Quebec youth.
From 4 p.m. on, studio hosts from RDS and both radio stations will be inviting the listeners to make a pledge to the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation and support this worthy cause. Members of the Montreal Canadiens family, including team owner Geoff Molson, general manager Marc Bergevin and Radio-Telethon spokesperson Guy Lafleur will be on hand during various radio shows on TSN Radio 690 and 98.5 FM. RDS and both radio stations will be on location to conduct live interviews. Meanwhile, Alumni members Gilbert Delorme, Pierre Bouchard, Yvon Lambert, Patrick Poulin, Mathieu Darche as well as player’s spouses and comedian François Morency will be working the phones to receive pledges from the general public until the end of the hockey game between the Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators.
“The Foundation and the Canadiens’ family at large are very grateful for the tremendous support, the generosity and the overall expertise provided by the Canadiens rights holders TSN Radio 690, 98.5 FM and RDS in making this annual event a resounding success, said Geoff Molson, President and CEO of the Montreal Canadiens. We hope that all listeners and fans will tune in and be generous to help us improve on the results of last year’s Radio-Telethon.”
