Telethon 2016: Jenifer, Tal and Garou united, donations rising and blunders
An enthusiastic mobilization.
The 2016 edition of the Telethon , ” 30 hours for 30 years ,” was closed in style in the night from Saturday 3 to Sunday, December 4, 2016 on the public service. At 2 am, the counter in favor of research on rare diseases posted over EUR 80.3 million in pledges!
As every year, many stars of music, film, television or humor mobilized to reap the most money for this worthy cause. Garou – the sponsor of the last edition – accompanied animators Nagui and Sophie Davant , received some of the most sought-after personalities from Friday night. From Jenifer to kendji girac through Tal , all artists have graced the stage installed this year at the Longchamp racecourse in western Paris.
Also present to raise awareness: Former sponsors Patrick Sébastien , Gad Elmaleh , Franck Dubosc , Patrick Bruel , Serge Lama , Jane Birkin , Marc Lavoine , the Vianney artists Kiberlain , Julien Doré , Christophe Mae, Coeur de Pirate , Arthur H, Vincent Niclo, Michel Boujenah , Antoine Duléry , Julien Clerc or facilitators Michel Drucker and Frédéric Lopez and the president of France Télévisions Delphine Ernotte . Thierry Marx chefs, Christophe Michalak and Christophe Adam have meanwhile made very special cakes that were auctioned on the website of Drouot before being delivered to donors by personalities of France Télévisions.
Who says Telethon also said “direct”, and inevitably, that says “live” says “blunders”! This year, the Kids are United who have spoken of them. The group of young children has in fact pointed out by running several times, ” Get up! ” The audience … It is also composed of people with disabilities. A small pellet that recalls that of François Feldman in 1996. Sylvie Tellier has also made note this year via a call for donations awkward …
Regarding pledges, the figure of 80.3 million euros shows a slight increase compared to last year (80.25 million). However, the tradition is that donors are always more generous than expected and give more! Last year, 94 million were finally harvested. Will he be better in 2016? Suspense.
