The event kicks off at 9pm, live from the BN Arena de la Ciudad Deportiva Hatillo 2, a sports complex built for the 2013 San José games.

Providing entertainment will be eight international artists, including Maite Perroni, Joey Montana and José Feliciano. The list of local artists includes the Escats, Son de Tikizia and Los Garbanzos.

For the last 15 years the telethon has been held in the Palacio de los Deportes in Heredia. Organizers say the change of venue is to get closer to the people (the Hatillos are accessible by a greater part of San José0 and the new sports complex is also fully accessible by the handicapped.
