SA Variety Bash 2020 – KI to the Capital
The SA Variety Bash 2020 ‘KI to the Capital’ will run from 7 – 12 November starting in Kangaroo Island and will finish in Adelaide. The entire 5 day journey will be within the state of South Australia.
During the event there are various trophies awarded to encourage fundraising, fun themes, fun for the kids and overall fun – the ultimate winners of the Bash are the kids in need with proceeds raised for Variety – The Children’s Charity.
As the only motoring event in Australia that supports kids in need on the road, they are always focused on raising money during the lead up to the event, but they also find it important to be stopping along the way to surprise schools and organisations with grants from your fundraising.
The Variety Bash was created in 1985 by adventurer Dick Smith when he took a group of friends for a drive he called ‘The Bourke to Burketown Bash’. The Bash is generally an eight day drive in the country with your mates. It is NOT a race or rally, it is a madcap event designed to put the fun into fundraising.
Vehicles must be in standard condition with a minimum age of 25 years. The drivers and crews, however, are anything but standard issue with most Bashers following the one major rule – don’t take it seriously and have fun!
