Simply Life Changing

If You Knew

Posted by admin, April 29, 2011 4:49 pm

On Christmas Eve, 1928, an abandoned baby girl was found at The Sheridan Theater in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. A note was pinned to her shirt pleading with the theater people to raise the child. A group of 11 gentlemen affiliated with the entertainment industry agreed to underwrite the child’s support and education.

They called the baby “Catherine Variety Sheridan” and thereby founded the first Variety chapter, or “tent.”

Today, Variety has 58 tents around the world. Detroit’s Tent 5 was established in 1932 and help’s kids no matter what the need, keeping the dollars locally, and allocating them swiftly and directly so that .90 cents of every dollar goes to kids in need – simply changing lives.

Our Mission

Variety-Detroit is a children’s charity, simply helping kids no matter the need, and serving as a trusted local source to do what’s right – changing our lives by changing theirs.
