CHARITY PARTNER FEEDBACK


"I just wanted to send you both a big THANK YOU for all of your help and partnership for this years Spring Carnival Starlight Fundraising! As always, Tracey, Erin, Jerome and I had a blast, alongside the 50:50 foundation, being involved again in this year’s Spring Carnival and having the honour of being BRC’s charity of choice once again in 2018.

Really special moments for us across all 4 of the days, especially the winning 50:50 ticket from Cox Plate day going to one of our very own Starlight Families! I sold the winning ticket to mum who owns a racehorse and was explaining to me that they have recently been given the news that their teenage daughter has been diagnosed with leukaemia so they knew Starlight well. You and everyone involved have had such a big impact for sick children and their families in hospital, donating over $17,000 which will allow over 430 children to have access to the Starlight Express Room and our amazing Captain Starlight program. Just amazing!

Thanks again ladies for the opportunity and we look forward to working with you both again in the future😊"
