“One Night in Havana” Gala with Special Guest Alex Cuba

Our upcoming “One Night in Havana” Gala will be like nothing you’ve experienced before. Come and be enchanted by the old world glamour where colours and music play with your senses as the culture envelops you and takes you to a new horizon. Cuba will welcome you into an era past; old Hollywood married with colonial structures and rum barrels. Take in the sensual dancing and vibrant personalities as you weave your way through the engaging offerings of food, drink, murals and cultural experiences.

Hosted by Global News Morning‘s Paul Haysom & Sonia Sunger, the evening will also feature musical guest, four-time Latin Grammy Award winner, three-time Grammy nominee & two-time JUNO Award winner, Alex Cuba and his band!

Havana is yours to embrace. Don’t miss it!

Dear Variety Family,

During the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) global situation, our highest priority is the health, safety and well-being of our Variety donors, families, members, supporters, volunteers and all British Columbians.

Variety BC has been here for more than 50 years ensuring kids with special needs thrive. I would like to assure you that during this uncertain time, we will continue to be here for BC’s kids with special needs.

I also would like to provide you with an update on our response to date and our commitment to you moving forward:

  • In keeping with the BC Centre for Disease Control’s recommendations, we will be postponing all Variety events between March 16th and April 30th including our One Night in the Valley Gala on Saturday, April 4th at the Glass House Estate Winery
  • We have closed the Variety Office as a precautionary measure and are having employees set up to work-from-home. All in-person meetings will be moved to teleconference. We will evaluate working “virtually” on a week-to-week basis while actively monitoring the evolution of this global pandemic and returning to regular operating procedures once health authorities deem it safe for our staff to do so.
  • Due to our office closure, we have postponed the shipping of Robert Bateman’s Woodworkers – Pilated Woodpeckers posters and our Variety water bottles. Anyone looking for tax receipts will receive them via email
  • With the closure of BC’s schools, the need to ensure our kids are supported has never been so great. As such, our Heart of Variety Fund will continue to accept grant accept applications by e-mail.
    Like all of you, we will monitor the COVID-19 situation and communicate with you on important health and safety measures and decisions regarding events regularly.

We encourage you to stay informed by visiting BC Centre for Disease Control’s website at www.bccdc.ca and the Government of Canada’s website at www.canada.ca/en/publichealth/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19

We are grateful for your support as we navigate through this uncertain time.

Thank you,

Cally Wesson
CEO – Variety BC
