On behalf of Car 181 (The Beach Boys) and all of the sick kids of WA, we would like to thank MLV Real Estate very much for your kind donation. Thanks to kind people like you, the Variety Bash (after all expenses) raised a total of $610,000! Again, thank you very much Dave and the team at MLV. - Mick Watson
What is the Variety Bash?
Australia’s largest and longest running charity motoring event – much imitated, never bettered!
The Variety Bash is not a race or a rally, it’s a fun and social event, or in the words of the originator Dick Smith, ‘A drive in the outback with a few mates’ in cars that are at least 30 years old (with an awesome theme!). A once in a lifetime chance to experience remote and regional parts of Australia that you might otherwise not see, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity. Throughout the Bash, participants visit local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to visit the kids.
How Variety Help?
Family and organisations can turn to Variety when government assistance isn't available. Variety provides support through grants for children and families for things like:
- Mobility equipment and wheelchairs
- Medical Items and services
- Therapy services
- Communication devices and education aides
MLV is a proud supporter of Variety WA.
