Variety families are invited to join our new Variety Family Social Groups, initiated in Spring 2019 by the Variety Family Council and led by Variety parents!
There are two social groups available, one for Variety Kids (ages 4 - 12) and another for Variety Teens (ages 13 - 20). All family members, including parents and siblings, are also welcome to attend social group events!
Each social group has a Variety parent leader who plans various outings throughout the year. So far, our families have gone bowling, played at the park, been to the movies and more. And, because each event is planned by Variety Families for Variety Families, you know that they will be as accessible, inclusive and FUN as possible!
It is required that at least one parent stays with their child at all times during an outing. Variety families are also responsible for the affordable cost of each outing, which is always shared in advance. These outings are not sponsored by Variety St. Louis.
During the coronavirus pandemic, our families have not been meeting in-person to keep all Variety Kids and their families safe and healthy. Recently, however, they have been planning fun virtual meet-ups - make sure to sign up below to be included on the invitations to these online events like bingo, hang-outs and more!
In addition, Variety St. Louis occasionally shares complimentary event tickets provided by community partners such as the Polar Express and the St. Louis Zoo with Variety Families. To encourage participation in these social groups, Variety will use the social group email list to notify families of these periodic community-sponsored ticket offerings. All members of the social groups will receive an email about these opportunities when they arise. This does not include tickets to Variety-sponsored events - all current Variety families will continue to receive email notifications when registration is open for Variety events such as Family Celebration Day and Fall Family Fun Fest, and when complimentary family tickets are available to Variety-sponsored events such as Dinner with the Stars and Variety Theatre, regardless of participation in these social groups.
If you're a Variety parent and would like to join the Variety Kid or Variety Teen social group and their outings and virtual meet-ups, please fill out the form below. You need only to register the Variety Kids or Teens in your family - siblings without disabilities do not need to be registered. If you have previously requested to be included in the social group e-mail list, you do not need to sign up again. We already have your information.
Your email will only be shared internally and with the social group's Variety parent leader, who will then contact you about social group events and outings. Please contact the Variety Family Council via email with any questions.
