COQUITLAM (News1130) – The 47th annual Variety Show of Hearts telethon is on this weekend.

It’s two days of entertainment, inspirational stories and your chance to help change a child’s life.

Highlights this year include performances by Adele, Paul McCartney, Rihanna, Michael Buble and Elton John.

Last year’s effort helped over 1,200 kids receive grants, gave much needed funds to over 150 cities and towns in BC and gave over $70,000 for life-saving medication.
