The Government of British Columbia has declared October 31st to November 4th Variety Week in BC in support of Variety – The Children’s Charity. From Monday to Friday, you can tune into Global BC newscasts for stories, interviews and entertainment that will showcase how Variety helps organizations and kids in your own community and throughout the province.
Variety Week in BC
Throughout the week viewers will experience firsthand the difference every dollar can make to a family in need, as they are introduced to children and families who need assistance right now. These stories and victories will be updated as part of the 2017 Show of Hearts Telethon in February allowing donors to see their contributions in action.
“Variety is there to help families who are in need to help their children’s special requirements,” says Variety BC executive director, Kristy Gill. “There’s not a lot of organizations out there that provide direct support to families like Variety does. The more support we get from the community, the more kids in all of British Columbia we can help.”
