Volunteer Spotlight: Kirby

What a great group of people! Variety KC couldn’t help the thousands of area children that we do without our amazing volunteers. Click here to hear from one of them – Kirby volunteers for Variety once and is hooked on helping!

Catie Cares: Hugs & Kisses

Some of the best fundraisers coincide with our favorite holidays, especially Valentine’s Day. The day of Cupid is perfect for selling candies and treats for charity since everyone’s looking for something a little sweet. One of our favorite fundraisers to throw is the Hugs & Kisses drive.


Catie Cares: Cookies and Cooking!

There’s an old saying that the fastest way to a man’s heart is through is stomach. However, we think this speaks for everyone! Who doesn’t love fresh baked goods or their favorite family recipe. If you have a large group that loves to cook and wants to fundraise through the Catie Cares program, then we have two fun ideas for you. Offer Christmas cookie baking services or write a cookbook. Both are great for every level of chef.


Catie Cares: Game Night

Part of the mission behind the Catie Cares program is to spread fun and awareness about Variety of Greater Kansas City. A great way to generate buzz and raise funds is to host a game night. There are a few ways to go about it, but we really like hosting a board game or trivia tournament.
