Event Group with Captain Starlight

Event Hospitality & Entertainment Ltd (Event Group) is Australia's premier entertainment, hospitality and leisure company.

Like Starlight, the Event Group is proudly Australian. Known for its entrepreneurial approach, the Group brings its passion and expertise to the market through its portfolio of high-profile brands including Event Cinemas, Rydges Hotels & Resorts, QT Hotels & Resorts, Atura Hotels and Thredbo Alpine Resort.

The Partnership began in 2006 when Starlight was named as the Group's founding workplace giving partner. Since that time, thanks to the generosity of staff, the partnership has grown and to date, has raised over $880,000 for Starlight.

Over and above workplace giving, staff participate in fundraising events donating vital funds to grant Starlight Wishes and to support Starlight's hospital programs.

Staff also kindly volunteer their time in the Starlight Express Room helping to bring a dose of happiness to sick kids in hospital.

The Group has also contributed in-kind support through the cinema and hotel divisions giving seriously ill children and their families much-needed respite with fun and entertainment. Their generous donations contribute to life-changing Starlight Wishes making sick kids' dreams come true.

The two organisations' brands and values have a natural alignment. Event Hospitality & Entertainment Ltd are committed to 'making the day better' by providing fun and entertaining experiences for their people, customers and the community.

Given the shared values, Event Group staff are highly engaged with Starlight's mission of brightening the lives of sick kids and enjoy seeing the difference their support makes.

Starlight is so thankful for the incredible long-term support from the Event Group and the lasting impact the Partnership brings to the lives of seriously ill children across Australia.
