Village Roadshow Theme Parks
A roadshow of family, fun and philanthropy!
Village Roadshow Theme Parks is Australia's largest theme park operator providing kids and families with some of the most exciting entertainment, rides and experiences anywhere in the world. Based on the sunny Gold Coast, Village welcomes millions of visitors each year to its parks including Movie World, Sea World, Wet'n'Wild and Australian Outback Spectacular.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks have been a passionate and enthusiastic Starlight Children's Foundation Partner for many years. Both organisations are focused on kids and families and bringing happiness to support families going through extremely difficult times.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks COO, Bikash Randhawa said the company is proud of its commitment to support the community and charity by providing an environment where organisations such as Starlight can bring sick, disabled and underprivileged groups to escape from their day-to-day troubles.
At Village Roadshow Theme Parks we create joy and memories that last lifetimes and our goal is to ensure we do everything we can so as many people as possible can experience an unforgettable experience with us.Bikash Randhawa
Each year Village generously donate theme park tickets to Starlight families heading to Queensland for their Starlight Wish. Every Starlight Wish is a gift of hope and happiness for a seriously ill child. In fact, a visit to a Gold Coast theme park is one of the most popular Starlight Wish requests. And for every Starlight Wish, Village staff go above and beyond to welcome seriously ill children and their families to give them an unforgettable holiday adventure.
The support from Village is incredibly valuable in helping Starlight give seriously ill children and their families a much-needed break away from the stress and pain of illness and treatment. Whether it's a surprise meet and greet with a child's favourite cartoon character or a special behind the scenes tour, Village staff provide amazing support to create memories that last a lifetime.
Village also supports Starlight's annual Wish Week which brings together Starlight families for some welcome time away. Importantly, Wish Week gives them the opportunity to connect with other families with seriously ill children who share an understanding of what they are going through. Village donates tickets and arranges special access and events throughout the families' stays.
Thanks to the Partnership, the team at Village makes sure that kids battling serious illness get the VIP treatment they deserve!
Village also generously donates prizes and ticket packages to support fundraising events including the signature Starlight Five Chefs Dinners.
The Starlight Children's Foundation and Village Roadshow Partnership is all about helping sick kids enjoy the same fun and happiness as every other child. Starlight is extremely grateful for the support and commitment from Village to brighten the lives of so many seriously ill children and their families.
