The 2013 edition of the annual Teletón (telethon) surpassed its goal of ¢700 million colones, closing the event in the wee hours of Sunday morning at ¢703.815.245, which proceeds go to the different hospitals, especially the Hospital Nacional de Niños (National Children’s Hospital).

The telethon began in 1985, with the main goal to collect money to improve medical centres across the country.

This year’s donations, in addition to the Children’s hospital, will help fund programs at hospitals in Nicoya, Liberia and Upala (all in Guanacaste), with focus on services for children.

 a Puerto Rican virtuoso guitarist, singer and composer known for many international hits, including his rendition of The Doors' "Light My Fire" and the best-selling Christmas single "Feliz Navidad".
