Our signature fundraising event since 1975, Iowans join together to give their time, talent and hearts to the Telethon—an entertainment showcase that has raised more than $113 million. See local, national and international personalities perform to enrich the lives of children in Iowa. And hear heartwarming stories from the children and organizations that benefit from Variety’s support. Thanks to the thousands of volunteers, the cast, and Very Interested Persons (VIPs) who take pledges and solicit donations from family and friends, Variety is able to help children reach their potential. Tune in to We are Iowa (ABC5) or stop by to see the show live, meet the cast and participate in children’s crafts. VARIETY TELETHON To learn more and get involved, visit varietyiowa.com/telethon. 18
