Va­ri­ety is the spice of driv­ing for char­ity

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Va­ri­ety Cre­ative Car Cruise kicked off at San­dal­ford Win­ery last Thursday, with a fleet of classic, mus­cle, sports and mod­i­fied cars start­ing their jour­ney to the Wheat­belt for char­ity.

The cruise, which at­tracted 27 cars and 61 par­tic­i­pants this year, raises funds for Va­ri­ety, with par­tic­i­pants con­tribut­ing at least $4000 to help sick and dis­ad­van­taged kids.

Va­ri­ety WA gen­eral man­ager Phil Croot said over the past eight years the cruise had be­come one of WA’s most beloved mo­tor­ing events.

“It’s the per­fect way to ex­plore some of WA’s most iconic small towns and brings to­gether all the best parts of a classic show,” he said.

“Most im­por­tantly for the par­tic­i­pants, the great­est re­ward of all is know­ing that their fun week­end is mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to the lives of WA kids in need.”

The cruise raised more than $160,000 last year.
