The 54th annual Variety Show of Hearts will be taking place on Feb. 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The show will be packed with live musical guests, entertainers and stories from kids around B.C. who are being helped by Variety, the Children’s Charity.
Along with Global BC’s Chris Gailus, Sophie Lui, Squire Barnes and Kristi Gordon, this year’s line-up of entertainment will feature Juno Award-winning indie band Said The Whale, singer-songwriter Shawn Austin, Canadian blues rockers Wide Mouth Mason, country artist Todd Richard and special guests, multi-platinum selling group The Tenors.
Donations can be made online, toll-free by phone at 310-KIDS, or by texting “KIDS” to 45678 to make an automatic $20 contribution.
Last year’s event saw generous viewers donate $5.5 million for B.C. kids in need.
Funds given to Variety support children across the province who are sick or have special needs. Variety gives grants for medical emergencies, therapies, specialized equipment, and out-of-town accommodation and travel costs.
