Variety added a ray of Florida sunshine to Florida’s East Coast when it granted an adaptive bike to the Easter Seals of Daytona Beach. This special stability-enhanced bike will give mobility to handicapped children who would not otherwise experience it. Many non-profits, such as Easter Seals, do not have in their budgets the resources to purchase this specialized equipment which can make such a difference in the lives of mobility-challenged children.
In making this donation, Variety partnered with Epic Theatres and its owner, the DeMarsh family. The brother and sisters of the DeMarsh family collectively provided the bike in memory of their parents. The donation was made in the lobby of the Epic Theatre in Deltona, Florida. On hand for the presentation were Variety’s International President and members of the DeMarsh family, as well as members of the Board of Directors of Variety – The Children’s Charity of Florida.
The theatre lobby was filled with the laughter of gleeful children. A few tears were shed as Clint DeMarsh recalled the love that his parents had for children and for children’s causes. The torch has been passed. Joe DeMarsh, Clint’s nephew, is the newest member of Tent 70’s Board of Directors. The legacy fostered years ago by the DeMarsh family forbearers continues.Visit Website
