Silent Auction Growing

Oscar Night America is next week…we are busy collecting wonderful Silent Auction items to have available to raise more funds for kids in need.

Lamar Outdoor donated a free week of a Digital Billboard….Leslie Carto from the Variety Board of Directors is busy calling everyone she knows and collecting amazing one of a kind donations.

At the post office yesterday and was surprised to have a large box waiting for me from Jillian Michael’s…It was filled with books, tapes and pictures for us to use to raise more money for our cause.

The amount of generosity that lies in people is is so comforting…some people just get it…That giving to others is the most powerful gift you could give to yourself….

So excited for our fundraiser…Thanks to all who give!

Radio blitz…Alice 102 and Q104


The infamous Kathy Quinn interviewed me today about Variety and all the wonderful events we have around town…We are have the most amazing adventures lined up for Variety and Young Variety…Oscar Night America…Auto Show….Bike Drive…Royals 5K…Kathy really let us share our mission and goals with the listening audience..We thank her for her support and encouragement…Will she really have a Kathy Quinn Team for the 5K….Let’s plan on it!

Happy Valentine’s Day


Heard from Katie and Billy Butler from Spring Training Camp. They were kind enough to send an autographed baseball to our little Noah for a special surprise. They loved the video of the event and asked if they could maybe be involved when they return to Kansas City.

Met with Young Variety…Ashley Matheny. She broke all the records and goals for the Young Variety Beer for Bikes event. 100% over budget. I am in awe that these talented young people have such big and kind hearts towards giving.

A huge thank you to Blue Cross and Blue Shields  for sponsoring Oscar Night America….What a special treat to have their support!

What a day to celebrate all the love in people’s HEARTS!
