Check out the adorable smile on our friend Oliver’s face!

Oliver is the 2024 Celebrity Child for this year’s Annual Variety Kids Telethon. He participates in sessions at Oishei Children’s Outpatient Aquatic Center & Aquatic Therapy which is proudly sponsored by Variety, the children’s charity of Buffalo and WNY.

“He looks forward to it every week and loves every second of it, ” said Amanda, Oliver’s mom. It’s such a positive experience for him and it helps his core strength. It’s pretty amazing.

It’s because of YOUR generous donations to the Annual Variety Kids Telethon each year that $300,000 goes directly to fund this incredible therapy program which helps kids just like Oliver.

Pictured below is Variety’s President, Paul Cambria with Andy Lashua, Sr. Director of Development at The Children’s Hospital of Buffalo Foundation. We’re thrilled to be able to fund incredible programs just like this for the kids in need right here in our community. We are forever grateful for YOU.

We kindly ask you to consider making a donation to The 62nd Annual Variety Kids Telethon taking place on Saturday, March 9th from 6pm-11pm on WGRZ, Channel 2 AND Sunday, March 10th from 10am-8pm on WBBZ-TV, Channel 5.
