Sponsorship Proposal

Who is Car 501?

We are a group of friends who are teaming up for the 2019 Variety Bash because we know that together we can help children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs, to attain their full potential.

2019 is the first time that we’re taking part in the Variety Bash. It’s an exciting and fun way to raise funds for children in need. As well as helping children and their families, the Bash is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other Variety supporters and experience what it means to be part of the ‘Variety Family’.

Our team are all members of the Redback Garrison, the Queensland Branch of the 501st Legion, a worldwide Star Wars themed club that collects money for a variety of charities.  Therefore, we are using the Star Wars theme for our car in 2019 Bash.  We will be taking our costumes with us, and wearing them whenever we stop at events that Variety have arranged along the way, or other opportune times that may assist with raising more donations.

The Redback Garrison will also be assisting us with collecting donations, at various events throughout Queensland, to not only lift our total but also promote Car 501, and raise awareness of the work Variety does in our community.

We’ve set ourselves the ambitious target to raise $15,000.00

but we need your help!

The Challenge

The iconic Variety Bash is Australia’s largest and most successful charity motoring event, to date raising over $220 million nationally for Aussie kids in need. The Variety Bash is 10 action-packed days through spectacular outback Queensland as the 2019 Variety Bash treks from Mackay to the Gold Coast!

Throughout the Variety Bash, we’ll visit local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to visit the kids we’re helping. ‘Bashers’, as we’re affectionately known, get to see the direct impact of our fundraising efforts along the way, with a range of educational, health and mobility equipment provided to local children, schools and organisations in rural communities.

Where the Funds Go

Every day, Variety – the Children’s Charity receives requests for assistance from families who are doing it tough. The money raised through the Variety Bash will directly help children who are sick, disadvantaged and who have special needs by way of goods and services.

In the last year, Variety has been able to provide almost $1 million in grants of equipment, services and scholarships throughout Queensland thanks to fundraising. Every dollar you donate is used immediately to help Aussie kids have a fair go.

  • Every $1,000 you contribute can help a child who is non-verbal to communicate with iPad assistive software.
  • Every $5,000 you contribute can help a disadvantaged child follow their dreams with a scholarship in the arts, sport or education.
  • Every $10,000 you contribute can provide wheelchair accessible vehicle modifications to help safely transport a child with special needs in their family car.
