About Variety Week

Variety Week is back on Global BC from October 22 – October 26, 2018!

During every Global BC newscast from Monday to Friday of Variety Week, meet children and families that need your help. Only with your support can Variety – the Children’s Charity ensure kids across BC have the tools to reach their potential and thrive.

Variety Week will let viewers experience firsthand the difference every dollar can make to a family who need assistance right now. These stories and victories will be updated as part of the 2019 Show of Hearts Telethon in February allowing donors to see their contributions in action.

The goal of Variety Week is wonderfully simple: We want to help as many kids as we possibly can!

Wrap Party at Robson Square

Join us for an event to remember as we wrap up Variety Week with a 60-Foot Ferris Wheel in Robson Square! Beginning at 12:00 pm on Friday, Oct. 26, you are invited to come and experience the fantastic panoramic views of the city from up high above while helping BC kids with special needs.Variety week wrap party image

This event is open to the public and will feature food, entertainment and for the first time in downtown Vancouver, a 60-foot tall Ferris Wheel! We invite you to share with your family & friends and help us reach our goal of helping 60 kids per day which coincides with the height of our Ferris Wheel!

Let us know you’ll be coming.
