I am passing in the possibility of 7 parameters into a function  

public string GetFilter(string Var1, string Var2, string Var3, string Var4, string Var5, string Var6, string Var7)

The vars will not always have a value. The Var could be "". I want to build a linq query where my where clause uses the Var if it contains a value. What's the best way to accomplish this with the least amount of code overhead.

you can use composition to create your query. it is effective and very easy to read and maintain:

If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Var1) Then
     qry = qry.Where(Function(c) If(c.Family Is Nothing, "", c.Family) = Var1)
End If
