IMPORTANT UPDATE: In the interest of the health and safety of our Variety Kids and supporters during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Variety St. Louis made the decision to cancel and not reschedule our Variety Week 2020 events. This includes Runway Lights Fashion Show (April 18), Variety Family Celebration Day (April 19) and Dinner with the Stars featuring Steely Dan (April 25).

At Variety, we are committed to providing uninterrupted access to the vital medical equipment, therapies and programs these events support, especially during this time of increased need for Variety Families. Now through the end of May, please give during the Variety Makes Possible campaign at to continue making the impossible, possible for Variety Kids. Thank you!

Variety Week is Variety’s pillar fundraising campaign, culminating with Dinner With the Stars, the signature black-tie fundraiser for Variety the Children’s Charity of St. Louis. The gala features a headlining performance by an iconic entertainer as well as the inclusive Variety Children's Chorus. Throughout the week, you will find many additional opportunities to give back to Variety Kids, kicking off with Runway Lights Fashion Show, featuring fashions from a top designer as well as Variety Kids on the runway. Other events include Imo's for Kids Day, when a portion of proceeds from all Imo's restaurants will help Variety Kids, and Variety in the Morning, when Variety Kids take over Fox 2 News as anchors and reporters.

Below are our Variety Week dates for the coming years. Mark your calendars now - we hope to see you then!
