Paley Institute Bike Presentation

Paley Institute Bike Presentation

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Florida is proud to partner with Frank Theatres in the presentation of this Specialized Pediatric Therapy Bike to the Paley Institute, thereby benefiting children who need it the most.  Not only are we able to fulfill our mission of child-focused community service, but are also excited to join forces with Dr. Dror Paley and his entire team of incredible surgical specialists.  This opportunity is the result of Frank Theatre movie goers’ generous support of purchasing Variety’s movie-themed Gold Heart Pins in all their theatres.

Epic Theaters has a Gold Heart!

Variety the Children’s Charity of Florida will be selling Gold Heart Pins at select Epic Theaters over the holiday season.  Marilyn and Gary from Eustis, Florida took time to make a donation before they enjoyed the movie at the Epic Theater in Deltona.   Marilyn commented when her father was born he needed extra support  equipment to stay alive.  In 1908 a cook stove was used to help keep his body warm.

During this holiday season until January 4th all money raised from the sale of pins will be used at the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Children & Babies to keep little ones alive in the neonatal unit. Your dollars of support play a big role in the lives of families.  Thank you!
