The St. Louis Variety Club distributed more than $1.7 million to 181 children's agencies in the area and individual children at its annual awards luncheon Thursday at the Adam's Mark Hotel.
The money was raised in the 1994 Sammy Davis Jr. Variety Club Telethon, which was broadcast March 5-6 on KMOV (Channel 4).
Baseball great Stan Musial was the guest of honor and recipient of the Variety Club's "Champion for Kids" award. A Sunshine Coach van was given in his name to the Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club of St. Louis.
