2019 Variety Vic Bash to Geralton

This August, the Land Monkeys are delighted to again return to the annual Variety Bash, Australia’s biggest and original longest running motoring charity event that assists children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.

As first-time rookie entrants last year in 2018, The Land Monkeys team (Combining Lotus Living, Oliver Hume, Ivy Street) raised an amazing $126,000! In recognition of our efforts and the incredible generosity of our many supporters, we were awarded The Rod Collins Spirit of the Bash award for Innovation 2018 winner and Top Hat Award in recognition of raising over $126,000. We were humbled from this irreplaceable experience whilst exploring some of the most beautiful places in the country.

With expectations of surpassing efforts from last year, the Land Monkeys are hoping to raise even more again this year, which will contribute to educational, health and mobility equipment for children and families in need.

As an added bonus and for something a bit unexpected! The Land Monkeys are also thrilled to announce Phase 2 of the Bash this year with the Variety Home Auction! We are all beyond excited! In collective partnership Variety along with Lotus Living, Porter Davis Homes, Ivy Street Advertising, Oliver Hume Real Estate, and all of our wonderful supporters, we will be auctioning off a premium, four-bedroom home in Melbourne’s popular master-planned community, Jubilee. All proceeds from the impending auction will be donated to Variety Children’s Charity. We could not be more proud.
