Variety – The Children’s Charity was born from the deep-seeded desire to protect and care for children in need. From that thought stems a brand new campaign for Eastern Iowa.
Variety is proud to announce our inaugural Hero Campaign ready to “SAVE THE DAY” in 2014! This 7-week campaign will kick off on Monday, March 10th. Volunteers will commit to raising $1000 to become a Variety Hero. These heroes-in-training will ask friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to help them become a Hero and make a donation to their campaign.
At the conclusion of the campaign, Variety and the Heroes will join forces for a Campaign Celebration on Saturday, April 26th.
Our two part celebration will begin in the afternoon with a family friendly bike ride on the Cedar River Trail. During the ride, there will be two rest stops where cyclists will receive “Hero Gear”. All riders will be dressed as super heroes by the end of the ride.
The evening will continue with our heroes teaming up with corporate and community heroes for a celebration including entertainment, check presentations, specialized bike presentations, and the unveiling of the total dollars raised by Variety and the Hero Campaign.
Become a Hero to a child.
It really is that simple.
