Sunshine Coach Program
At this year’s Show of Hearts, Variety will be celebrating a very important milestone – Variety’s 600th Sunshine Coach to hit the road in British Columbia.
It was 25 years ago when The PACE Program received a Sunshine Coach to use for their Family Program which offers intensive early intervention for young children with emotional and behavioural challenges and their families. Today, they are in urgent need for a new one. We are so pleased to announce that on February 11th because of our donors’ commitment to this program, their dream of a new coach will be fulfilled.
Robert Bateman Poster
Back by popular demand, donors can once again receive an official Robert Bateman poster with a minimum donation of just $169! This year we will be featuring Robert Bateman’s Water’s Edge – Wolves poster and donors will have the opportunity to have their posters framed for an added $169 by GS & Company, with a portion being donated to Variety.
Don’t miss your chance to win one of three incredible prize packages in the Show of Hearts Lottery! There’s an all inclusive trip to Los Cabos up for grabs along with a NASCAR Driver for a Day experience, and a luxury getaway in Charleston.
