The Variety Boys & Girls Club of Queens has an incredibly rich history of local people doing all they can to make a difference in the lives of young people in the communities of Western Queens. Since opening its doors in 1955, the Club has been an anchor in the neighborhood, offering children a haven to learn, play, and grow into tomorrow's leaders.

As a part of the Club’s annual One Campaign Fundraiser, VBGCQ is hosting a Back to School Festival for the Club’s families and the greater Long Island City/Astoria community.
