Variety – the Children’s Charity of New York’s 46th Annual Holiday Party December 16, 2014 12:58 AM - Variety New York

Variety – the Children’s Charity of New York’s 46th Annual Holiday Party took place on December 6, 2014. As in years past, Variety welcomed over 700 children from local shelters, hospitals, and community organizations to participate in a day filled with arts, crafts, entertainment, food, delicious treats, and overall merry spirits.

One of the highlights of the party was a dance performance and collective dance experience led by youth from variety NY grantee The Door. The children also attended a screening of The Penguins of Madagascar with complimentary concessions at a local Regal Theater for a full cinema experience.

The day was a huge success mostly due to the dedicated support of over 50 volunteers. Each year members of Young Variety New York as well as corporate volunteers from organizations like BlackRock, Coca-Cola, and the Black Women Lawyers Association, roll up their sleeves to serve the children lunch, help them create snowman ornaments and paint their smiling faces!

At the end of the day each child received a brand new toy collected during our annual toy drive. The 2014 Toy Drive runs between Thanksgiving and Christmas at over twenty participating buildings in the city. For more information on our Annual Holiday Party and Toy Drive visit our website:
