2015 Variety NSW Dick Smith B to B Bash
The wave of lunacy will thunder its way across 4500kms of sunburnt country from August 2 - 11, taking in the Great Australian Bight, Esperance and 18 regional and remote towns along the ten-day journey. The event raises money for disabled, ill and disadvantaged children. In 2015 Variety celebrates 40 years of lending a helping hand to Aussie kids, helping them be kids.
For the 2015 Bash, entrants have been granted special permission from Aboriginal elders to trek across sacred land of the Nullabor Track from Yalata to Eucla, delivering $5000 of play equipment to the Yalata community. The convoy will also be granted sightseeing to wales in the Bight and some of the most beautiful coastline in Oz.
Interesting entrants for 2015 include a 1939 Oldsmobile, as well as ambulances, a couple of hearses, and will all be dated pre-1976. The 2014 Bash effort raised $2.2million, and 2015’s entrants must raise $8500 per car to enter. To enter or donate to the 2015 Variety Dick Smith Bash visit www.variety.org.au/nswbash.
