Commercial & General’s Variety Bash team raises $71,170
A huge congratulations to our Variety Bash team who took on the 2023 event and raised an impressive $71,170 in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity of South Australia.
Development Director - Commercial & Industrial Dwayne Erich, Senior Development Manager William Vartzokas and Development Director - Residential Aaron Wilkin set themselves a target of exceeding last year’s effort and they well exceeded this goal.
“We are extremely grateful to the many Commercial & General suppliers and businesses who supported our fundraising efforts through generous donations,” William said.
“For many, it wasn’t their first time donating to our Bash team and we appreciate the fact they backed us again as a way to support the great work being done by Variety.”
The team’s smoking hot, gold 1988 Mercedes 420SEL was again the car of choice for this year’s Bash, complete with full shisha piping and an upgraded smoke machine fitted to the car.
The $71,170 raised by the team helped Variety raise a staggering $2,393,000 which will have a transformative impact in bringing hope and support to South Australian kids who are sick, disadvantaged or living with disability.
“The excitement and joy on kids’ faces is always by far the best part of being involved in the Variety Bash,” William said.
“Every time you enter a town or visit a remote school along the way, you get to see firsthand what the Variety Bash means to communities and why it is so important.”
