Please note: Variety SA constantly review the program of unique experiences we offer kids in need in our state to maximise the fun to be had and expand the impact on more kids in our community. Given Variety already offers kids an annual Christmas Party as well as an Easter Picnic, the decision has been made to redirect the generous fundraising dollars and volunteer hours from the Surprise Party to a range of new experiences we know the kids will really enjoy.

Corporate Volunteers

In recent times, with companies and corporations focussing on corporate social responsibility, we have been overwhelmed with requests for their staff to volunteer, and we have had to put a structure around our volunteering opportunities for corporates.

To be eligible for staff volunteering opportunities, Variety offers a Business Partnership that includes volunteering for up to 20 staff members, along with many other benefits.

If this is something that you would be interested in, please contact the team at Variety SA for more information.
