Join the Starlight mission and Dish Up a Wish this Christmas

November 29, 2013 Charity No Comments Email Email

This festive season the Starlight Children’s Foundation invites restaurateurs around Australia to ‘Dish Up a Wish’ to help raise $1.2 million to grant 185 life-changing Starlight Wishes for seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families.

Restaurants and cafes can easily ‘Join the Mission’ by adding an optional donation to every bill, or dedicating a dish and donating the proceeds to help sick kids.

Starlight will provide all the tools needed for restaurants and cafes to promote the initiative to their customers including flyers, posters and business card and tent card artwork. Participating businesses will also be featured on Starlight’s Dish Up a Wish microsite. Starlight_Maddy

Starlight ambassador and Masterchef finalist Hayden Quinn urges the food service industry to get involved. “Dish Up a Wish is an easy, fun way to get your customers into the giving spirit this Christmas.  I encourage all restaurants and cafes to take part and raise much-needed funds to give sick children and their families an experience they’ll never forget.”

Each Starlight Wish requires an average funding of $6,500 and Starlight receives no government support, relying solely on donors, corporate partners and the community to make these wishes possible.

Starlight Chief Officer, Louise Baxter, says: “A Starlight Wish is quite literally a dream come true for a child battling a chronic or life-threatening illness and we know that these wishes can be a crucial turning point in helping them to successfully fight on.”
