Suncorp Bank and Starlight Foundation give kids a chance to shine

19 August 2013

Suncorp Bank has donated corporate tickets to Starlight’s Livewire teenagers and families to see Cirque du Soleil.

Suncorp Bank teamed up with the Starlight Children's Foundation to offer children and their families the chance to attend the show at the Perth Arena.

Suncorp Bank General Manager of Western Australia said teaming up with the Starlight Foundation, whose mission is to lift the spirits of seriously ill and hospitalised children, has meant that the Bank could offer these seats to these children and their families.

“Starlight is the only children's charity with a permanent physical presence in every major paediatric hospital within Australia.

“Our affiliation with the Starlight Foundation started when we partnered with Perth Arena. We have since donated our corporate suite along with our premium floor seats to the Starlight Foundation for several events,” Mr Cockerham said.

As part of sponsoring Perth Arena, Suncorp Bank has access to a corporate box along with six premium floor seats.

“Being able to assist worthy local charitable organisations like the Starlight Children’s Foundation through this partnership is an added bonus, and one we look forward to continuing,” Mr Cockerham said.

Starlight Children’s Foundation’s State Partnerships Manager Jayne Graham said this was a wonderful opportunity to deliver positive distraction to support Starlight families.

“Thanks to our supporters, these kids can replace pain, fear and boredom with fun, joy and laughter,” Ms Graham said.

Suncorp Bank will provide banking products and services including ATMs throughout Perth Arena to ensure the patron experience at events is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
