A celebration is taking place on Feb. 13 and 14 when the curtains rise for the 50th Annual Variety Show of Hearts Telethon on Global BC. Variety – The Children’s Charity is commemorating 50 years of supporting children in BC with special needs.


The show will broadcast live from The Theatre at the Hard Rock Casino reuniting kids, performers and hosts in a tribute to Variety’s illustrious past, as well as introducing the new stories and ideas shaping Variety’s future.

In a salute to its entertainment roots, Variety is introducing a second stage at The Centre at 777 Homer Street in downtown Vancouver. Hosted by ET Canada’s Erin Cebula, the two shows promise fun for fans of all ages with an eclectic ensemble of Canadian artists.
