"The Bash is a fantastic way for us to give back to the community and support Variety's vision of creating a future where every child, regardless of circumstance or ability, can be supported, included and equal."

With five team members and Car 10 plus a support vehicle at their disposal, the Daracon Group is gearing up for an unforgettable experience as they join 300 other participants on the Bash. Kicking things off in Dubbo on May 21 then heading through the picturesque towns of regional NSW the team is looking forward to seeing how their fundraising efforts are making a positive impact on Aussie kids before crossing the finish line in Newcastle on May 27.

"For us, the Variety Bash is about more than just raising money; it's about spreading joy and excitement to country towns across NSW," said Lauren Coates, Car 10 Team Captain and Daracon's Bid Coordinator. "We're honoured to be a part of such a great cause, and we can't wait to hit the road and make a difference in the lives of children and families in need."

Since 1999, Daracon Group has been a regular participant in the Variety Bash, racking up over 22 Bashes and raising over $1,600,000 for Variety – the Children's Charity NSW/ACT.

It's not too late to support β€˜Car 10 - Team Daracon’ at this year's Variety Bash by making a donation and make a real difference to the lives of Aussie kids in need.
