Third Annual Variety Week banner

The Third Annual Variety Week happens from Monday, October 22 to Friday, October 26.

Throughout the week, Global BC will be showcasing the work that Variety does to help BC kids with special needs and their families.

During every newscast (including Global News Morning and Global News Hour at 6), viewers will meet the families who Variety has helped and get an up-close look at how their lives have changed as a result.

In addition to calling and donating, viewers from across the province will be able to register to have their own fundraising page set up online. This new platform allows both individuals and groups to connect with friends, families and co-workers in support of kids with special needs.

Third Annual Variety Week Wrap Party

Variety Week will wrap up with Global News Hour at 6 broadcasting live from Robson Square, including a first for Robson Square: a 60-foot tall ferris wheel!

The public is invited to the Robson Square free event beginning at noon, featuring food and entertainment, plus gorgeous panoramic views from the ferris wheel (ride tickets by donation to Variety BC).

The goal is to help 60 kids per day, symbolically matching the height of the ferris wheel.

Last year’s Variety Week saw Variety raise an incredible $835,000. Donations can be made by calling toll-free at 310-KIDS, online at or by texting “KIDS” to 45678 to make an automatic $20 contribution.

Follow the action on Variety BC’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram social media accounts.
