Supporting Vital Programs

An important piece of this show is fundraising for vital senior programs in the community. When you donate or buy tickets, your dollars continue to help seniors. Some organizations who have benefited from SVS proceeds are:

  • Heartland Senior Services of Story County

  • Story County Freedom Flight

  • Retired Senior and Volunteer Transportation Program of Central Iowa

The volunteer staff and performers who make up the Senior Variety Show are very grateful to businesses, organizations and individuals in Ames, Story County and surrounding communities for your support of the Senior Variety Show. We could not continue without it.


Please review the form below and indicate your sponsorship level with a mark in or near the box if front of that level. If you wish to send the contribution, just mail it to the address in the lower left portion of the form, or if you wish to be invoiced for your contribution, just return the form with your information and the checked level to the email address in the lower right portion of the form. Thank you!
