Variety BC welcomes and supports enthusiastic individuals that want to raise money to aid families in BC with special needs kids. For over 50 years, residents in BC have given back to their communities by organizing their own events such as:

  • pub nights, dances-a-thons, skate-a-thons

  • races, marathons, scavanger hunts;

  • golf tournaments, dart games, bowling, any sporting game;

  • casino nights, fashion shows;

  • car washes, bottle drives;

  • and many other creative and unique events!

Some of our wonderful donors even ask for donations in lieu of birthday, wedding, anniversary presents.

This online system allows you to create your own event, send out emails to friends, peers and family members and you can monitor your progress to help you reach your goal.
