Joel Plaskett will parade his Maritime pride at this year’s annual Christmas Daddies Telethon on Sunday.


The artist is performing at the 47th fundraiser put on by CTV Atlantic that provides toys, clothing and food to less fortunate children and their families.


CTV’s Steve Murphy and Starr Dobson will host the event, which raised more than $857,000 in 2009. It will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on CTV Atlantic and then from 2 to 6 p.m. on A.


More than 17,000 children from around the region received assistance as a result of the telethon last year, according to a CTV release
