Valmec Supports Starlight Children's Foundation at 5 Chefs Dinners
Valmec have been privileged to be able to support the Starlight Foundation through the attendance at their signature fundraising dinners in both Western Australia and Queensland where we have our major operations.
Starlight Five Chefs Dinners are Starlight’s signature fundraising events and are supported by some of Australia’s best chefs. It is a night that truly makes a lasting impact on guests and those Starlight children and families that the fundraising supports.
Starlight Five Chefs Dinners are unique because almost everything on the night is donated including the chefs' time and expertise, entertainment, food, wine and auction items. With no government funding, this generosity enables Starlight to ensure that every dollar raised on the night goes directly to Starlight Programs.
Valmec secured tables at both the Brisbane Starlight Dinner in June and the Perth Starlight Dinner in September, with staff and clients attending and actively contributing to fundraising efforts by way of raffles, donations and the charity auctions.
Since 1988, Starlight has transformed the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families, throughout Australia. Based on the World Health Organisation's Social Model of Health, Starlight programs are designed to make children happy and lift their spirits when they need it most, building resilience so they are better able to cope with the challenges serious illness brings. Starlight transforms a child’s hospital experience from traumatic to magical, enhancing their long term wellbeing.
