2022 Variety Vic Bash to Cairns

This year, 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.

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.

In 2019 we surpassed our previous efforts and raised a total of $340,000 which was a combination of the Variety Home Auction and our Go Fund Me page, nearly doubling our efforts from 2018!

With expectations of surpassing efforts from previous years, 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.

In a collective partnership, Variety – the Children’s Charity - along with Resi Ventures, Burbank Homes, Ivy Street Advertising, Oliver Hume Real Estate, Realestate.com.au and all of our wonderful supporters - will be auctioning off a premium Burbank four-bedroom home in Accolade Rockbank, one of the fastest growing communities in Melbourne’s West. All profits from the impending auction will be donated to Variety the Children’s Charity. We could not be more proud.
