The Variety Club is a very worthy charity and one we at Fox Mowing SA are proud to support. Our Franchisor, Ron, was lucky enough to be invited to participate in the 2019 SA Variety Bash by joining Car 96 in their 28th year on the bash. Each year the dedication shown by each entrant is what enables Variety to succeed in their efforts to provide support to so many children and their families.
The Variety Bash was created in 1985 by adventurer Dick Smith when he took a group of friends for a drive he called ‘The Bourke to Burketown Bash’. The Bash is generally an eight day drive in the country with your mates. It is NOT a race or rally, it is a madcap event designed to put the fun into fundraising. Vehicles must be in standard condition and shall be models with a minimum age of 25 years. The drivers and crews, however, are anything but standard issue with most Bashers following the one major rule – don’t take it seriously and have fun! The Bash is the entrant’s reward for a year spent fundraising for the children of SA who really need it.
The Bash today has not changed from its original concept. It began in SA in 1989 and has seen Bashers travel through much of our beautiful country during this time. Over the past 31 years, the SA Bash alone has raised in excess of $43 million (net) for South Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or live with special needs!
