Variety, the Children’s Charity of the Desert, will host its inaugural Young Variety Launch Party and Mixer from 7 p.m. to midnight Jan. 28 at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs.

Variety is dedicated to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of underprivileged and special needs children in the Coachella Valley. All programs and funds benefit local children and families. Variety hosts numerous events attended by the business community and are eager to engage with a younger audience to interact and promote the life of the charity.

“It’s our hope that the under 40 crowd turns out to meet new friends, have a good time, and consider getting involved and becoming Young Variety,” said Steve Johns, board member.
