(Green Bay, WI) CP, a proven leader in providing therapy and life skills services for physical, sensory and cognitive conditions, has the stage set for the 66th Annual CP Telethon, airing March 7 and 8 on WBAY-TV2.

“We are excited to be back for another year of great entertainment and sharing what we do at CP with the community,” said Kristen Paquet, Director of Marketing and Communications for CP. “We’re putting together an awesome show, full of great music and special guests you won’t want to miss.”

As always, This Year’s Telethon is jam-packed with exciting local entertainment, including Johnny Wad, The Cougars, 7000apart,NEW Piano Guys, Annex, Let Me Be Frank Productions and more.

“Our goal is to keep the energy high and have lots of fun,” Paquet said. “The music these groups will bring to the stage is pretty much guaranteeing that happens.”

Paquet says that in addition to the music, Telethon will feature many powerful and inspiring stories. “We know that a lot of people watching Telethon may never need to use CP’s services, but everyone can rally around the triumph of the human spirit,” Paquet said. “Telethon will introduce you to some pretty amazing people, each with their own story, their own goals and their own accomplishments that you can’t help but be inspired by.”

Telethon is CP’s largest event of the year.

“Telethon has been entertaining the community for a long time and we are excited to be back,” said Callie Sherman, Director of Philanthropy for CP.  “It’s the perfect time for us to say thank you to the people, businesses and organizations that support CP. It’s really a celebration of yearlong giving.”

Sherman says the money raised from Telethon supports services offered to more than 2,100 clients every year. “From the smallest kiddo, to our most seasoned adult, CP has been there, helping every client live the life they want to live,” Sherman said. “Our future looks bright and there are so many possibilities on the horizon. It’s an exciting time for CP, our clients and our community.”
