Event benefits Variety the Children’s Charity
A sold-out crowd of 300 people attended “Hearts and Stars” benefiting Variety the Children’s Charity at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham on Saturday night. Guests, who shelled out $250 for general admission and $500 for VIP tickets, enjoyed dancing, cocktails, and a dinner that included a duet of filet mignon and pan-seared halibut.
Paul W. Smith of WJR-AM was emcee and called to the stage three very special Variety children — Henry, Kinsley, and Annabelle — to share their successes with Variety’s program. This is the 85th anniversary of the organization’s service to southeastern Michigan, and Bruce Rosen was honored for his enthusiastic support and dedication to the children of Variety.
Event co-chairs were Lois Shaevsky and Michael Coyne, and over $225,000 was raised to support Variety’s core programs serving children with special needs.
