NIBA CEO hits the road for charity

Variety Bash

NIBA CEO Dallas Booth is taking part in next month’s Variety Club Bash – and is asking NIBA members to throw their weight behind the Variety cause.

The annual Variety Club Bash aims to raise as much money as possible for Variety, which supports a wide range of projects aimed at improving the lives of Australia’s sick, disadvantaged or special needs children.

The Bash takes place from 7–17 August, with 6000km of predominantly off-road routes taking participants from Brisbane to Busby’s Bore in Sydney’s Centennial Park, via central Queensland, and central and west NSW, including Broken Hill.

Booth, who is getting involved with the Bash for the first time, will tackle the bash in a 1969 Ford Fairline and will share driving duties with his good friend Les Smith in the Team Toshiba Car 1100.

“I am keen to get as much support for Variety from members and friends of NIBA to show the community that insurance brokers and insurance people really do care about the needs of others, and are prepared to do their bit to help,” said Booth.

“All donations will go straight to Variety – they are not used for the cost of running the cars in the event. Donations are tax deductible, receipts will be issued by Variety, and all donors will receive a certificate of appreciation for their donation.

“If we can receive lots of donations of $50-$100, Variety will be able to do great things for needy children, and the insurance industry will be able to show it has a strong commitment to the community.”

To support Dallas and Variety, donations can be made online at Les Smith’s Everyday Hero fundraising webpage.
