Variety – The Children’s Charity of Buffalo & Western New York

We have a long and storied tradition of helping children from all over Western New York. Our annual Variety Kids Telethon, the longest-running in the nation, raised over $1 million in 2016 for the Robert Warner M.D. Center for Children with Special Needs, Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, and other local children’s charities. Telethon 2017 will be broadcast live on WKBW-TV from our new location at the Seneca Niagara Casino. Thanks to the tremendous generosity of Western New Yorkers, Variety Buffalo ranks #2 overall among U.S. Variety tents in dollars raised per capita! Let’s show the country what we’re made of here in WNY and get up to #1 in 2017!

 

A HUGE thank you to all of our supporters!
