Iconic Rock band, the Goo Goo Dolls will return for the third year in a row kicking off the telethon on Saturday night! Both, Johnny Rzeznik and Robby Takac are true Buffalo Boys who grew up watching the Variety Kids Telethon! Their dedication and support to the Buffalo music scene speaks for itself. They are currently out on tour in support to their new smash hit album, Miracle Pill. It is a true honor to have their continued support for Variety Club of Buffalo and WNY.
