swap and shop

For sick and disadvantaged children in Queensland

This year has seen the launch of Alpha Car Hire’s involvement in the Variety Bash, a charity event to raise funds for special needs and disadvantaged children in Queensland. To assist in this worthy cause, Alpha Car Hire will be hosting a Swap&Shop event on Tuesday, July 17 at the Princess Theatre in Woolloongabba.

This event is a chance to swap pre-loved items for new exciting ones while at the same time supporting a worthy cause. Bring along five pre-loved items in good condition and receive five tickets as your currency for the Swap&Shop. Your five items don’t have to be clothes – tops, skirts, dresses, pants, jeans, necklaces, bracelets and rings are all accepted as long as they’re in reasonable condition.

Then enjoy light refreshments and live entertainment while you wait for your pre-loved goods to be catalogued and sorted. When everything is arranged into categories, Alpha Car Hire will open the doors to let the Swap&Shop festivities begin. Once you’ve compiled your new wardrobe, you will be able to proceed to the checkout to ‘pay’ for you items with your five tickets. Its super simple and loads of fun!

There will also be amazing prizes on the night including a 7 night luxury holiday with a 6 day SUV hire, $200 professional stylist makeover and $100 hair styling package. Tickets to the Swap&Shop event are on sale for $49 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Variety The Children’s Charity, a not-for-profit organisation empowering children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs.

Since the first Variety Bash in 1990, more than $15 million has been raised to help empower special Queensland kids to live, laugh and learn. For more information about the Swap&Shop or the variety bash, visit the Alpha Car Hire website or contact them on 07 3268 9519 today.
