VARIETY KIDS TELETHON 2011 GEARING UP!

March 4, 2011 Updated Nov 23, 2013 at 9:58 PM EDT

Buffalo, New York (WKBW)

The 12 hour telethon will originate LIVE from the Grand Ballroom of the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Downtown Buffalo, Sunday March 6th from 7:00a.m. through 7:00p.m. Sunday. This is the 49th annual Telethon for Variety –The Children’s Charity of Buffalo & Western New York which is the longest locally produced Telethon in the world, and the 48th for Channel 7. All monies raised by the Variety Kids Telethon benefit The Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, Robert Warner M.D. Center For Children With Special Needs and many other local charities benefiting children that Variety serves.

Making Good Things Happen Everyday…For “OUR” Kids!…is the theme of Telethon 2011. It is always great to see a smile on the beautiful face of a child and with the continued generosity of the people of Western New York, Variety’s special children will see many good things happen for them everyday in their lives.

Times are tough this year and the Telethon is aware of that. EVERY donation is important and is truly appreciated. The needs continue for our kids; we know the people of Western New York will continue to support our special kids by calling in their donations on Sunday March 6th. In addition to calling, donors can go online and make their donation, or use their credit cards and receive some wonderful premiums. You can even pick up a cell phone and text a donation for Variety’s Special children.
