A little bit of Variety

IN the next week more than over people will rev their engines and get ready to go on a life changing adventure.

Thursday, July 29 will kick off as the first day on Variety Bash with 106 bash cars leaving from the Gold Coast heading up to Gympie.

For Gladstone locals, your chance to join in will be on July 30 when the bash cars roll into Biloela at 4.30pm with dinner at Heritage Park. There will be a concert held in Biloela at night with Peter Denahy lined up and the Sugar Daddies.

The Variety Bash is a great event held annually and since 1990 they have raised more than $14 million for children charities and organisations throughout Queensland.

The Variety Bash has come a long way since its start in 1985 once where a few mates drove around in the Outback raising money, now into a state wide event with major sponsors and hundreds of entrants.

If you missed out on entering the bash this year and would like to get involved next year, or just to donate money to one of the worthy causes you can head to www.varietyqld.org.au/bash.
