Variety - The Children's Charity Bash
The Variety Bash is a large fundraising motoring event where the focus is firmly placed on having fun. It's a hilariously madcap event - involving outrageously themed cars and participants.
A host of organised and spontaneous events and fantastic entertainment enhance the great community spirit and camaraderie the Bash engenders in its participants. Shane was the Ambassador for the 2010 Bash. www.varietyvic.org.au
