Variety Charity and Fred Astaire Partner in Las Vegas

Fred Astaire Dance Studios made the 2006 holiday season a very special one for the intellectually and physically disabled children of the John F. Miller School in Las Vegas by donating funds from its Mix and Match to Variety – The Children's Charity of Southern Nevada, who used the money to contribute mobility equipment to the school. Fred Astaire's funding provided specially designed tricycles and mobile adaptive tables that now make life easier and more active for the 120 wheelchair bound students who attend the school.

Variety's mobility program aims to help even more children throughout the country experience the freedom of truly being on the go through the support of money raised at Fred Astaire Mix and Match competitions. Variety hopes that, in addition to the Mix and Match donations, the recent launch of gold top hat lapel pins in local Fred Astaire studios brings in even more funds to provide handicapped children mobility equipment like wheelchairs, walkers, specially designed adaptive bikes and van lifts.

Variety -The Children's Charity of Southern Nevada thanks all the teachers and students of Fred Astaire Dance Studios for helping improve the quality of life for children with special needs in Clark County.
