This Starlight Day, Friday May 6, Moo Gourmet Burgers is inviting its customers to its Martin Place pop up store to support The Starlight Children's Foundation.
Moo Gourmet Burgers founder Adam Gerondis said, "My grandfather was well known for his generosity and proudly supported many charities as a way of giving back what his adopted country, Australia, had done for him. He supported an orphanage, The Dalwood Children's Home, for many years by donating the takings on the anniversary of the opening of the Black & White Milk Bar and inviting the kids in for milk shakes."
The Black and White was opened in 1932 by Mick Adams, Gerondis' grandfather.
"I am proud to have been supporting Starlight since Moo Gourmet Burgers opened in 2009 and have contributed over $22, 000 so far by donating 50 cents from every "Little Cow" kids meal to the foundation," Gerondis said.
"It is a great privilege to set up a pop up "Black & White Milk Bar" where it all started in Martin Place in honor of my grandfather and all he did for the community."
Starlight Day, Starlight’s biggest annual fundraising event, aims to raise $1.3 million to support over 30,000 sick kids and their families. More than 2,000 Starlight volunteers will hit the streets on Starlight Day to sell merchandise and collect donations across Australia.
Moo Gourmet Burgers aims to sell 1,000 milkshakes on Starlight Day and donate all proceeds to the foundation so they can continue to support sick kids and their families through the charity’s uniquely Australian Captain Starlight and Starlight Express Room programs.
Every child admitted to hospital, regardless of illness or injury, along with their family, can access the Starlight Express Rooms and Captain Starlight programs.
