Golden Casket and Starlight Children’s Foundation share the joy this Christmas
The Lott by Golden Casket has a strong heritage of giving back to players and their families across Queensland by supporting community initiatives and charities.
As part of this contribution to the community, we are incredibly proud to be a long-standing National Partner of the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Starlight grants wishes to seriously ill children to bring them, and their families, fun, joy and laugher during a time of pain and stress.
With the help of our Instant Scratch-Its customers this festive season, Golden Casket is sharing the joy by helping to grant wishes to seriously ill children and bring a smile to their faces.
For every $10 25 Days of Christmas Instant Scratch-Its ticket sold during November, $1 from Golden Casket proceeds will go straight to Starlight Children’s Foundation Wishgranting program, up to $100,000.
Each year Starlight brings to life wishes for over 500 seriously ill children and their families. And this year, the Lott by Golden Casket will be helping to grant Starlight Wishes for sick kids like Hayden.
Hayden is a young boy who had a large tumour in his brain stem that left him paralysed on his left side.
After the shock diagnosis, Hayden started the long journey back to health, which often required stays in hospital. During his extensive hospital visits, while he was recovering from intensive surgery and receiving ongoing medical treatment, Hayden spent time with his siblings and family in the Starlight Express Room, which became a home away from home.
To ease the pain and stress of being separated from his family during his treatment and to provide a dream-come-true experience for Hayden, Starlight also granted his wish to go on a cruise to visit the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland.
The trip was an exciting and happy holiday for Hayden and his family, providing them with renewed hope for their future.
Share the joy this Christmas and help grant the wish of a seriously ill child like Hayden, by picking up a $10 25 Days of Christmas Instant Scratch-Its ticket at any Golden Casket outlet this November.
