A decade of support


As one of the world's leading biopharmaceutical companies, Pfizer's mission is to work towards a healthier world. This is very much aligned to Starlight's commitment to supporting the health and well-being of seriously ill children and their families. The two organisations recently celebrated their decade long partnership.

The cornerstone of the partnership is the joint Cause Related Marketing initiative with Pfizer's Consumer Healthcare Division. Over the last ten years, ten cents from every pack sold from the Dimetapp Kids range has been donated to the Starlight Children's Foundation. This initiative has generated more than $1 million to help Starlight support seriously ill children across Australia.

A visit to the Starlight Express Room is also a highlight for staff. Through these popular "Laughternoon" sessions, Pfizer staff experience the fun and laughter that Captain Starlight creates thanks to their generous support.
