This year’s gala raised over $550,000 and had over 600 guests; another record breaking fundraising event for Variety! It was an excellent night celebrating Variety’s kids and gifting items in our core program areas; Care, Freedom, and Future. In front of a captive audience, we were able to change the lives of 5 deserving families. Brody and Hayden received adaptive tricycles, Devon received an iPad, and David got his sport wheelchair. Our largest reveal of the evening, was the gifting of a brand new 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan, to the Bodman Family.
