A nonprofit organization, Variety of Georgia works to improve the lives of children in need who may be challenged by physical and/or mental disabilities, poverty, abuse or neglect. Following the tradition of the first Variety fundraising event, a circus-themed affair held under a big top, clubs are often called "tents" and members "barkers.”
Variety of Georgia Tent 21 was formed in Atlanta in 1939. About 80 percent of its members come from the motion picture industry, but membership is open to others.
