Thanks to Clinton for Variety fundraiser

Variety Club thanks Clinton for holding a fundraiser for them.

Dear Editor

Former US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton wrote a book in 2007 entitled “It Takes a Village”, I think the title of which (let alone her last name) seems remarkably prophetic.

Variety – The Children’s Charity would like to thank the people of the Village of Clinton for coming together and showing their hearts to children who have special needs.

Your recent “Variety Show” event, which has raised over $4,000, is an example of the power of families coming together to help families.  I understand that many individuals and local organizations donated their time and talent to make this gala a huge success and for that we are grateful.

Variety relies on the generosity of people across B.C. who fundraise on our behalf, helping us in no small way to do what we do. It’s thanks to these partnerships that we feel connected to our supporters in every community around the province.

I also understand that Clinton is wrapping up its year-long 150/50 celebrations. We send our warmest congratulations to everyone in recognition of this wonderful milestone. As you look ahead, please know that your support will give thousands of children in B.C. the chance to see their futures as ones filled with help and hope.

It definitely did take a village; one with a huge heart.

On behalf of everyone at Variety – The Children’s Charity, especially the families we serve, thank you for your support.

Bernice Scholten, Exec. Director
