BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Variety Kids Telethon is getting ready for its 57th go-around helping children in Western New York.

The telethon will broadcast live on 7ABC from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 3rd from the Seneca Niagara Casino. Members of the 7 Eyewitness News team will also be live at Oishei Children's Hospital.

This year's telethon will feature Celebrity Child Victoria Reyes and Honorary Chairs The Goo Goo Dolls.

Every dollar donated to the telethon stays in Western New York. Donations help fund programs at Oishei Children's Hospital, Camp Good Days, the Boys and Girls Club, and more than a dozen other local children's charities. Again this year, credit card donors will receive prizes for donating. You can view the different prize categories here.
