Purple Haze

This true community event which brings together business, fans, volunteers and the club has raised over $1million for Starlight since 2003! Check out the fun.

Purple Reign

In the fast-paced world of basketball, our partnership with the Sydney Kings for the Purple Reign game sees fans and supporters dress up in purple to fundraise for Starlight.

The Sydney Kings are proud supporters of Starlight as their official charity partner and players regularly visit the Starlight Express Room to see first-hand the difference their support makes. 

The partnership shines thanks to its shared commitment to making hospital a brighter place for sick kids and it’s clearly a hit with fans and the community!
