Variety celebrates 21st with bash
GET ready, get set, and drive.
Variety Queensland is celebrating its 21st birthday with a nine-day bash from Southport to Port Douglas.
This year is set to be the biggest yet, with the bash cars set to re-trace the track of 1990.
With three teams entering locally, Gladstone is sure to surprise and raise much-needed funds for Variety.
Matt Mohorovic, Shane Noy, Mark Cumming and Lyn Bultitude all got involved in the challenge after Mr Mohorovic received medical support and help for his daughter from Variety Queensland; and saw the bash as a great opportunity to give something back.
“We are excited, but it has been a long road. After fundraising and finding a car we are just looking forward to the event,” Mr Mohorovic said.
All teams are expected to raise at least $7500 for Variety, but the fundraising road has been a long one.
Adam Rose, who has dressed his 1966 Holden bash car in Australian colours, has managed to raise $5500 and is hoping to make up the final dollars this weekend with a raffle and sausage sizzle at Bunnings.
Matt Mohorovic and his team have decided to theme their car to the tune of frogs, with Kermit making an appearance on the hood and frog suits for the team to wear during the course.
Both teams are happy to be involved with the event to raise money for charity and are looking forward to the starting date on July 29.
To help out and support the teams and Variety Queensland you can head down to Bunnings this Saturday at 9am and get involved.
