Tune in to support an important cause in Clarence-Rockland on March 24.

The second radio-telethon to raise funds for the reconstruction of the Centre d’Accueil Roger-Séguin long-term care facility starts at noon that day and goes until 8pm.

The radio-telethon will be broadcast live on 94.5 Unique-FM and TVC-22 from the Salle Optimiste at 1535 avenue du Parc in Rockland.

More than 20 different performers will be featured on the broadcast, and there will also be an artisan fair in the hall with products from a variety of vendors.

Chef Pete from Rosalynn’s Bistro will also be there preparing enjoyable eats for visitors.

Centre d’Accueil Roger-Séguin is in the midst of a major fundraising effort towards the $35-million cost of rebuilding the facility, which is located in Clarence Creek.  It recently began the “Do you have your brick?” campaign to raise $10-million for the reconstruction project.

“The radio-telethon is an opportunity for the community to come together and help rebuild a local francophone institution.  It’s also a message of love and support in the development of adaptive care for our residents,” said Joanne Henrie, Centre d’Accueil Roger-Séguin Administrator.
