Variety Splash sets a new course

Variety Splash sets a new course Image

Keen boaters are setting a steady course for Port Phillip Bay next February to raise money for special needs and disadvantaged children as part of the third annual Variety Splash.

Modelled on the successful road-based fundraising event the Variety Bash, the three-day Variety Splash will follow a new course in 2010 – Docklands to Sandringham; Sandringham to Geelong; Geelong to Docklands – to cater for growing participation in the popular event.

Variety events manager Janette Connolly said the new route would contain the same level of festivities and fun – with a few new adventurous activities thrown in along the way!

“For the past two years the first stop-over had been held at the Mornington Yacht Club – a great venue that turned on amazing food, plenty of fun and wonderful hospitality,” Ms Connolly said.

“With a record number of participants expected in 2010, it appears we’ve sadly out-grown Mornington Yacht Club as an overnight venue and Splashers will spend their first night at the new, state-of-the-art Sandringham Yacht Club.

“We’ll again stay at Royal Geelong Yacht Club on the second night, then back to Melbourne Yacht Club Hotel at Waterfront City for the final night party!”

Further to the early entries that have been flooding in for the 2010 Variety Splash, Watters Electrical has already started to power things up by again stepping onboard as a major event partner. The company raised $33,000 for the Variety Splash at its recent annual Watters Electrical Ball.

The 2010 Variety Splash will be held February 25-27. Those interested in participating in the event or looking to become an event partner should contact LeisureCorp on 9642 1227.  Further details are available at http://www.varietysplash.com.au
