The Variety Telethon wrapped up Sunday night here on ABC5. After a weekend of generous donations from across Iowa, the total is in. The 2013 Variety Telethon raised a record $3,603,013 for Iowa kids.

Variety's first telethon in 1975 raised $150,000 and went to one grant recipient, Blank Children's Hospital.  38 years later, Variety has raised over $90 million that has been granted to agencies serving children across the State of Iowa and have put over 300 Sunshine Coaches on the road transporting children to new adventures.  Thanks to the cast members, volunteers and donors who support Variety during Telethon and throughout the year, Variety is able to raise the much needed funds for Iowa's Children.
