Variety NSW Bash raises over $1Million for kids in need

News | Friday, 31st May 2019

On Saturday, May 25th the Variety NSW Bash returned to Newcastle after raising over $1 Million for kids in need. Daracon have been long term supporters of Variety and we're proud to have broken our record raising $130,000 for this year's bash. 

The 104 cars and 350 Bashers travelled 2,200km on dirt roads and through creek crossings to visit 10 schools throughout NSW and ACT, making donations to help provide opportunities for regional kids to get a fair go. More than $50,000 worth of grants were given to regional schools to purchase much needed equipment such as coding robots, playground equipment and literacy materials to help ensure kids, no matter where they live, don’t miss out. Over 7 days the Bash visited Nowra, Moruya, Canberra, Batlow, Wagga Wagga, Carrathool, Wyalong, Binda, Goulburn and Wollondilly before returning to Newcastle.

Thank you to all our suppliers, clients, subcontractors, employees, friends, and family that have donated. It's only with your help that we can continue to support the great work done at Variety.
