Variety – the Children’s Charity of the Desert/Tent 66 is on the move and building their ability to promote and protect the health and well-being of children who are underprivileged and have special needs in the Coachella Valley. Some key additions to their Board of Directors has broadened their reach for resources and fundraising within the desert community. In addition, the recent formation of a Young Variety group has increased their membership base and added new fundraising events.

What best represents their impact in the desert is often told by a child’s individual experience with Variety of the Desert. Recently, Roger’s story says it so well. Roger experienced a big difference in his life by being awarded an adaptive customized bicycle from Freedom Concepts at Tour de Palm Springs! He now rides with a glow of joy, excitement and newfound pride with the freedom and confidence that bike has brought to him. His gift was made possible by the generous donations of United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire and Variety of the Desert.

Tent 66 is making a concentrated effort to increase pledges and sponsorships to the highest level in the event’s history that will also celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the “Care for Kids” Radiothon and bike giveaway taking place this November 3rd and 4th. The Annual Red Carpet Oscar Party for February 28, 2016 has become a marquee event in the desert and is sure to raise more money than the previous year. Count on Tent 66 to become bigger and better in the coming months.
