Variety Children's Charity featuring John Legend

Tickets  $137, $72 & $62

Variety is pleased to announce that, master of musical styles and platinum selling—John Legend will headline at the Dinner with the Stars!  The dinner and concert will be held at the Peabody Opera House, and also for the seventh time the entire cost will be underwritten by World Wide Technology, Centene Charitable Foundation and The Steward Family Foundation, meaning all the money raised will go to the kids.  Variety Week is the pillar fundraising and awareness campaign for the charity.

Dinner with the Stars has been Variety St. Louis’ premier black tie gala for more than 50 years. This event, to be hosted at the Peabody Opera House on April 28 in 2018, brings together some of St. Louis’ most esteemed, philanthropic citizens to celebrate Variety. We are thrilled to announce that this year’s iconic headlining performer will be the critically acclaimed John Legend.

Multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter John Legend has garnered ten Grammy Awards, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe, among others. Legend recently released his fifth studio album “DARKNESS AND LIGHT,” featuring his current hit “Love Me Now,” to rave reviews. The multi-talented Legend also serves as one of the principles for Get Lifted Film Co., a film and television production company that serves as Executive Producers on well known works, including the HBO documentary “Southern Rites,” WGN America’s series “Underground” and films such as “La La Land.”


About Variety the Children’s Charity of St. Louis

Variety empowers children with physical and developmental disabilities, also referred to as children with special needs, and improves their quality of life. Our programs highlight ability rather than disability. This holistic approach gives access to critical medical equipment and therapies, along with innovative Camp and Performing Arts programs, which provide opportunities for recreation, socialization, and artistic expression. Children gain or maintain independence, boost socialization among their friends and family, demonstrate belief in themselves, and increase skills they need to engage their world as fully as possible.
