Pirates set course to inland for this year's Brats Bash
KIDS get to come too on this year's Brat's Bash as mums, dads, even grandma and pop get behind the wheel this weekend to raise funds for Variety Queensland.
Just like the tough and crazy antics of the adult's Variety Bash, except a bit more refined, the Brat's Bash is for families, with an emphasis on fun.
Gladstone's dynamic duo Cyndi Ward and Kristy Sturzaker are again hitting the back roads west of the Sunshine Coast to help.
Ms Ward runs the Gladstone Remax Gold office and is taking her son Angus along for the adventure.
Wearing pirate's garb complete with the Jolly Roger flying off their Nissan, it's the third Variety Brat's Bash Ms Ward has been on.
With no cutlasses or cut-throat razors, their most deadly weapon will be their booklet of pirate jokes.
Ms Ward and Ms Sturzaker have already made their goal of $5000 but more is welcome to help fill their pirate's treasure chest.
"I got involved because I appreciate the great work Variety does for children," Ms Ward said.
"We raised $3000 last year so we upped the ante for 2015 and aimed for $5000, which we have achieved through pie drives, sausage sizzles and sponsorship.
"More sponsorship from the Gladstone community is still welcome."
The bash leaves tomorrow from Beefy's Pies at Glenview.
Cheques made out to Variety Queensland can be dropped off to the Remax office at 69 Goondoon St, or phone 0411 607 935.
