2015 marks a very important milestone for EMPR Group, we are proudly celebrating our 5th year of working alongside the remarkable people from Starlight Children’s Foundation via the ‘Starlight Wishgranting Program‘.

At EMPR, we take Social Responsibility very seriously and give back to the community where we can. Starlight is a major focus for the team at EMPR, as we are not only working together as a company and building an amazing culture for a great cause, but we are granting the wishes for seriously ill children & their families.

A Starlight Wish is a once in a life time experience for a seriously ill child and their family, it is an incredible gift of hope during the toughest of times.

Over the 5 years we have been supporting Starlight, our aim has been to raise enough money to grant these much needed wishes. Our 5 year goal is $200,000, this amount will have allowed EMPR Group to grant over 30 wishes for the children & families of Starlight.

In 2011 we raised $4,000 – 1 wish granted

In 2012 we raised $15,029 – 3 wishes granted

In 2013 we raised $42,347 – 7 wishes granted

In 2014 we raised $62,022 – 10 wishes granted

To meet our goal of $200,000, we will need to raise a further $76,602 via 2 special events we have planned for 2015.

Special Fundraising Events

Each year #TEAMEMPR participates in the Sun Herald’s City2Surf, one of Sydney’s favourite sporting events and the world’s largest fun run.  We get together with our very supportive & generous Staff, Business Partners, Customers and Family & Friends to raise much needed Wishgranting funds for Starlight. This year, we will be holding not 1, but 2 very special events to reach our 2015 goal of $76,602 and overall goal of $200,000 or 30 wishes.

The 1st Special Event, ‘Fundraiser Under The Stars‘ will be held on the 30th of May at the Camden Valley Inn. We have an amazing night planned which starts off with lovely Cocktails and Canapes followed by a sit down dinner with prizes, giveaways and raffles. During the event we have a very special guest appearance by Channel 9 Journalist & Footy Show Host Erin Molan, MC Mick Pedavoli to host the night, Entertainment Boxing by the champions at Grange Old School Boxing and Live music by singer & songwriter Tori Darke.

The 2nd Special Event will be held at the City2Surf 2015 on August 9. We have hired 2 Beach Marquees on the iconic Bondi beach so that our guests are able to rest, hydrate and enjoy a day of gourmet catering, beverages, entertainment, along with amazing prizes & giveaways!

If you would like to get involved in any of these events, please contact EMPR Group Marketing Manager Fiona Fong on fiona.fong@emprgroup.com – Tickets to Fundraiser Under The Stars are $140 each (selling out fast) and we are always looking for support from companies which would like to donate products to our event for Starlight.
