This past weekend was the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon and we were invited to attend. I am the proud mother of a young girl who with the help of her family, friends, and community, raised $8891.78 for Variety this year. The experience of fundraising was rewarding for all of those involved, although at times exhausting. This was a huge accomplishment that will benefit so many children. 

 

We couldn’t have lucked out more with the weather. Sure there was a few sprinkles and the odd snow flake but isn’t that to be expected for February. We spent the night with family and Sunday headed off to the Red Robinson Theatre. There the children appearing on the telethon were buzzing about anxiously awaiting their time in the spot light.  The folks at Variety had set up an area for the families and children to relax, colour, read, watch movies and get to know each other. The children even had the option of getting some make up on their pretty faces. 

 

The Variety Show of Hearts Telethon is always a success. We have had to depend on their help in the past and I’m sure we will again in the future. That help isn’t possible without donations from people across British Columbia. Our thanks go out to all of those who donate and volunteer to help Variety-The Children’s Charity support children and families across the province. 

 

Thank you British Columbia and thanks Variety!
