Motoring for a cause
Variety Bash cruises through to Charleville for a night
AUSTRALIA’S longest running and most iconic charity motoring event, the Variety Bash, cruised in to Charleville for an overnight stop last Friday.
The epic charity journey began at the Sunshine Coast and will end at Airlie Beach tomorrow.
Variety, the Children’s Charity, give out ten grants along the way to children in need and bring smiles to many more faces, visiting 15 schools on their travels.
The bunch of raucous entrants, who are dedicated to raising funds for kids in need, rolled into town on Friday for an overnight rest stop.
Variety announced on the first day of the trip, that entrants had collectively raised over $1 million and counting, for Aussie kids in need.
The 114 colourfully themed cars and their larger than life and often costumed crews, are a welcome hit of vibrancy to the town.
With themes such as The Simpsons, James Bond, Rocky Horror, Minions, Where’s Wally, Scooby Doo and Dr Seuss characters, there’s something for both young and old.
By supporting children and their families through equipment grants, programs and experiences, Variety helps children in need to overcome the obstacles they face so they can reach their full potential.
The Bash can inject roughly $90,000 per town when it stops overnight along the route, and these funds enable local community groups to work on improving the town’s infrastructure or start on local projects for the community.
