Konvoy 4 Kids rolling into town
THIS year’s Konvoy 4 Kids event will be held this Sunday, August 15 from 10:30am to 3:00pm. Each year, thousands of kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs, get support from Variety the Children’s Charity when they need it most.
Over the last 10 years, the QLD Variety Bash teams 69, 50 & AW409 in Mackay have proudly raised over $214,000 for children in need. In Mackay, cars 69, 50 & AW409 hold many fundraising events throughout the year and their biggest event is the annual Konvoy 4 Kids.
This is a convoy of trucks that travels from Sarina Showgrounds along the Bruce Highway to Mackay Showgrounds before celebrating with a family fun day at the Showgrounds.
Their mission is to empower Aussie kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs, to live, laugh and learn. The vision is for all Aussie kids to attain their full potential regardless of ability or background.
The event will also have free rides for kids and market stalls. You won’t go hungry with various food vendors on site. Get your photo taken with the Variety Bash Barbie Car.
Get involved with the Games on the day with prizes to be won. There is also live entertainment with Anette Worthington and you can cuddle a farm animal at the Free MAD Animal Addiction Barnyard.
