Jim Byrnes Named Honorary Life Board Member

Variety proudly announces that St. Louis native, accomplished performer, and long-time Variety supporter, Jim Byrnes, has been named an honorary life member of Variety's Board of Directors.

Even after moving to Vancouver (where he supported that Variety chapter), Jim returned to St. Louis to entertain at 28 Dinner with the Stars galas.

We happily recognize Jim's devotion to the people of St. Louis, especially all the Variety kids he's entertained over the years, and welcome him to an honorary list that includes William H.T. Bush, Marge Imo, Chip Rosenbloom, and Ozzie Smith.

Congratulations, Jim!

Byrnes through the years
