Today is the day. It is a sure sign that spring is almost here in Western New York. The 56th annual Variety Kids Telethon on Channel 7!

Liz and I will be up early today to help welcome guests and take donations this morning.

According to a summary about them:

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Buffalo & WNY has been serving the needs of WNY’s sick, disabled, and disadvantaged children for over 80 years. As the area’s leading children’s charity, we’re honored to be part of the fabric of this community and to have the public’s trust. That’s why all of our donations stay local and go directly to the equipment and programs that our region’s special kids need most.

Every dollar raised will stay right here in Western New York. Click here if you would like to donate and don't forget to tune in to Channel 7 today. Here is a challenge to all of our listeners, friends and country fans to help Variety with any pledge you can make!
