Local Events



The Children’s Charity is hosting their 25th Annual Variety Leinenkugel Golf Invitational at Elmcrest Country Club, Tuesday August 13th. This year, in attendance and golfing will be Former Hawkeye Football player and Former NFL player Tim Dwight.

 Dwight says, “To be invited to play at their 25th Annual Golf Invitational and have the opportunity to help raise money for Variety, brings me great joy. I look forward to a great day of golf with a great charity which helps improve the lives of children in Eastern Iowa”.

 Golfers tee off in both morning and afternoon, there are still foursomes available, however this event is expected to sell out. One of Variety’s trademark programs is called, Kids on the Go! Over the lunch hour, there will be a very special presentation to a little boy named Beau, who will receive a Specialized Bike presented to him by Tim Dwight and Variety Golf Committee.

 Variety Kids on the Go! program aims to help kids gain mobility, confidence, freedom, independence and the chance to join in the life of their community by providing funding for specialized bicycles, walkers, wheelchairs, therapeutic strollers and other devices to families with the most need.

 Variety – The Children’s Charity has had a presence in Iowa since 1937. Variety is dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged, at risk, and special needs children throughout Iowa.
