Variety, The Children's Charity of Southern Nevada

Founded in 1950, Variety, The Children's Charity of Southern Nevada, is a 501 (c) 3 organization, dedicated to providing services for children with special needs in the Las Vegas community since 1950.

Serving more than 20,000 special-needs children, Variety, The Children’s Charity of Southern Nevada, has donated more than $7 million worth of goods, services and money to children’s programs affiliated with 36 local agencies. Variety provides charitable support to the Kids on the Go! Mobility Program, Sunshine Coach Transportation Program, Kids in Need Temporary Assistance Program, Learning for Kids Experiential Tools Program and Kids at Play Therapeutic Recreational Program.

In 1950, Variety Clubs International granted a charter to a group of local resort and entertainment executives “to hold a Tent of The Midway located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and to be known as Tent No. 39.” For many years, Tent 39 sponsored the annual “Night of Stars,” which attracted thousands to the old Elks Stadium and later at Cashman Field to be entertained by some of the biggest names in show business, including Elizabeth Taylor, Red Skelton, Jack Benny, Jane Russell and Sammy Davis Jr.

Today, Variety International has a network of 43 Tents in 13 countries to offer financial assistance and services to children and organizations that serve children with special needs.
