Driving Variety's Caves 2 Waves

PRISCILLA has a new rival — but not in the desert.

Sharon White, of Annangrove, and her good friend Kerry Parnaby, plan to take on the Caves 2 Waves challenge with their Priscilla, Queen of the Desert-inspired 4WD.

Hosted by the Variety Children's Charity, the event will raise funds for children with special needs while entrants enjoy the drive from Jenolan Caves to Forster from March 24-29.

And they're not shying away from being the only female participants: their 4WD has an oversized red high-heel shoe on the roof and huge eyelashes on the headlights.

"We really wanted to stand out as the only female participants and just have fun with the car," Mrs White said.

This will be the second year for the good friends, who have been raising funds through charity dinners, raffles and auctions.

Mrs White said they loved last year's trip and won the award for being the friendliest and most enthusiastic team.

The pair also took the title of the highest fund-raisers in the event's history, collecting an impressive $50,000 for Variety.

"The highlight of last year's trip was visiting local special needs schools and seeing the impact our funds have had on the children," Mrs Parnaby said.

This year they will visit two schools to see how the school has benefited from the funds.

David Nicholls from Bella Vista will also be joining the ride.

The Mean Fiddler is hosting a sold-out fund-raiser on February 21.
