Telethon judges panel

SUDBURY – It's an annual tradition for many as they get into the Christmas spirit by watching, donating, volunteering or taking part in the CTV Lions Children's Christmas Telethon.

It's a show that always delivers great local talent while helping families in need put present under the tree.

Auditions were held on October 5.

"Today we are auditioning talent for the up and coming telethon… We are listening to singers, dancers, also audition for the show for the first Saturday in December, so hopefully get some more people coming out," said Jeff Wiseman, Telethon Music Director.

The 71st CTV Lions Children's Christmas Telethon takes place December 7.
