Variety – the Children’s Charity of Buffalo & WNY, known as the Variety Club, has been serving the needs of WNY’s sick, disabled, and disadvantaged children for over 80 years. All Telethon donations stay local and support the mission of Variety, to transform, uplift, and enrich the lives of children living with illness, disability, and disadvantage in Western New York.

The beneficiaries of the Variety Kids Telethon include John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, the Variety Tent #7/Robert Warner MD Rehabilitation Center, and dozens of other local children’s charities.

The Variety Kids Telethon is the longest running, locally produced telethon in the nation, and a true WNY tradition. Each year, the community comes together to rally support for our region’s special kids. Last year the Variety Kids Telethon raised $906,060!
