Ricky’s in Surrey’s Central City raising cash for Variety this weekend

CITY CENTRE — The 2014 Show of Hearts Telethon fundraiser at Ricky’s restaurant is this weekend.

Every year for the past eight years, the popular restaurant has held a weekend-long fundraiser for Variety – the Children’s Charity that coincides with the telethon. Ricky’s  in Central City has raised well over $60,000 so far.

The restaurant owners give a portion of every meal to Variety, plus they hold draws for items like signed sports jerseys during the telethon, held on Jan. 25 and 26.

Owner Avtar Bains is encouraging everyone to stop by at any time during the telethon weekend and "have even toast just to make us donate $5 on your behalf."

Bains said their goal is to beat last year’s total – and every little bit helps, he added.

The restaurant is located at 1076 Central City in Surrey.
