Variety Show of Hearts Telethon 2016

50 years of Variety: Michael J. Fox. Just months before the release of 'Back to the Future,' Burnaby's own Michael J. Fox visited the Variety Show of Hearts telethon.

It’s the 50th anniversary of the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon and to celebrate, Variety will be holding live shows and going back to its musical roots.

The telethon takes place Feb. 13 and 14 and will feature live music, inspiring stories and a look at how Variety has helped children from around B.C.
