Campaign to Support Variety the Children´s Charity of Buffalo and Western New York

Variety - the Children's Charity of Buffalo and Western New York supports children in our region who are facing illness, disability, or disadvantage with a range of programs from life-saving medical interventions to enrichment programs in sports and the arts. Our flagship event is our annual Variety Kids Telethon, one of the nation's longest-running, locally-produced telethons. Funds from the Telethon go to the Variety Tent #7 Robert Warner Rehabilitation Center and the Oishei Children's Hospital, as well as over a dozen local children's organizations in Western New York every year.


Our mission is to transform, uplift and enrich the lives of children facing illness, disability or disadvantage in Western New York.
Our vision is to be the most trusted and effective children's charity in Western New York. 
Our promise is to be a faithful steward of public funds and a compassionate advocate for the most vulnerable children in our region.
