La Porchetta celebrates 30th birthday by granting Starlight Wishes

As part of its 30th birthday celebrations, La Porchetta will partner with the Starlight Children’s Foundation to help grant at least four life-changing Starlight Wishes to sick kids and their families.

A long-time supporter of local and children’s charities, La Porchetta wanted to do something special for deserving families in need of a spirit lift as part of its 30th birthday festivities.

On Friday 5th June 2015, all La Porchetta restaurants across Australia will be raising funds for the Starlight by donating $1.00 from each large pizza sold. 

La Porchetta aims to donate $25,000+ to Starlight, to help the foundation continue to brighten the lives of sick kids and their families.

La Porchetta hopes to grant at least four once-in-a-lifetime Starlight Wishes through the funds raised. A Starlight Wish is a dream come true for a sick child, giving them and their families something positive to look forward to during treatment.

Starlight grants a variety of wish types including travel wishes, hero wishes, experience wishes and gift wishes. A donation of $6,500 enables the foundation to grant one Starlight Wish.

“La Porchetta was built on family values and we see so many happy families at our restaurants,” said La Porchetta CEO Sara Pantaleo. “Its wonderful to experience families growing up and celebrating special milestones with us. For our 30th birthday we wanted to support families going through a difficult time, as we can appreciate serious illness disrupts not only the life of the sick child, but it can disrupt the entire family. We’re proud to partner with Starlight to deliver Starlight Wishes that will bring the whole family together.”
