About Variety’s Mission

Variety is a multi-faceted organization with one single purpose: Enriching the lives of children with physical or developmental special needs and their families.  Variety sponsors year-round activities, events and programs focused on: improving a child’s physical and emotional health and well-being; building self-confidence; strengthening resilience; and creating opportunities to pursue a limitless future.

Quality Lockout Sponsor Spotlight

Every year Variety hosts a Holiday Party at the movies. Unfortunately, this year the party has been cancelled but movie night should not be! Thanks to the support of our wonderful sponsors who are so passionate about our mission Variety was able to pack up Christmas bags for over 250 Variety kids & family members with physical or developmental special needs. Variety families will now enjoy their own holiday party within the safety of their home. Gifts include DVD’s, weighted blankets, beanie babies, fuzzy socks, popcorn, gift cards and so much more.  We are thankful to our sponsors who made this opportunity possible; Annex Charitable Foundation, Forever Lazy, Hooga Health, Mike & Kris Guest, Lynn Smith & an anonymous Variety Friend.

  • I wish so many more people would know about Variety. My daughter has been afraid and self conscious about trying new things. With tickets etc being donated, my daughter has grown by leaps and bounds. Thank you Variety.
