The 29th annual SA Variety Bash kicks off on Saturday 12 August, with more than 100 crazily themed cars and 300 colourful costumed crew taking part in the eight-day, 1875 km drive starting from the ‘Pastures’ of Mount Barker and travelling to the ‘Pines’ of Mount Gambier.

The  event raised an all-time Australian record $2.64 million (net) last year after another $2.33m (net) record the previous year and entrants are hoping to do it all again whilst preparing to present an impressive $463,519 worth of grants to regional schools and families en route.

Variety - the Children’s Charity of SA is a not-for-profit organisation empowering South Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs. By supporting children and families through equipment, programs and experiences, Variety helps children in need to overcome the obstacles they face.
