Gene Valaitis: Show Your Heart


This Sunday is Variety – The Children’s Charity’s Show of Hearts Telethon.

I am honored to be selected to sit on the Gold Panel during the TV show on Sunday on Global BC which will be airing from 9 – 5 p.m.

Please help me and Variety. I ask you to call my very own line (604-549-7013) and donate to children who need it most around BC. I will be on the phone from 12:30 to 1:30 pm Pacific Time so do not miss out!

You have likely heard about Variety, but if you’re not sure what Variety is all about here is a short history lesson. It’s eye-opening.

In 1927, the original Variety Club was formed by 11 businessmen involved in the entertainment industry after the original Members discovered an abandoned baby girl in one of their theaters. They elected together to raise her as a team.

Since then this alliance developed into an organization that puts children first and, today now boasts 43 chapters in 11 countries.

Here in British Columbia, our chapter was established in 1966 with the focus on children who have special needs throughout the province.

Whatever you can do to help is invaluable. So, take a second. Give
