Sens Foundation Telethon for Roger's House
The Sens Foundation, along with Rogers Sportsnet, is preparing for the seventh annual Roger's House Telethon presented by CN. The telethon will take place on Tuesday, March 16, beginning at 6:30 p.m. prior to the Battle of Ontario between the Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs on Rogers Sportsnet. Sponsors of the telethon will match all donations up to a total of $25,000.
Rob Faulds of Sportsnet and Leanne Cusack of CTV Ottawa will serve as hosts for the evening’s event. During the broadcast, viewers will be introduced to some of the children and families who count on Roger’s House to provide them with the best care possible during a difficult time.
Roger’s House, the charity of choice of the Sens Foundation, provides a comprehensive pediatric respite and palliative care program with elements of outreach, residential hospice, pain and symptom management; grief and bereavement counselling and research. Since opening its doors in May 2006, Roger’s House has had more than 900 admissions. For further information, please visit http://www.sensfoundation.com/eng/index.cfm.CN All-Canadian Awards
