Southbank business rallies for Starlight

13 May 2013

By Sean Car

Local Southbank business, Chill on Ice Lounge and Ski Lodge has recently taken part in a national marketing campaign to support 25 years of the Starlight Children’s Foundation and its work transforming the lives of seriously ill children, young people and their families.

Each contributing business created a special offer hosted by website Living Social, and $2 from each deal sold went towards recognising the importance of the foundation’s valuable work.

CEO of the Southbank-based venue, Nicole Smith, was responsible for running the initiative and her response to the outcome couldn’t have been more positive.

“We sold 346 deals and raised $692 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation,” she said.

“The campaign was a great way for both our business and our customers to show support for Starlight and celebrate 25 years of their work helping Melbourne families. We’re delighted to have had the opportunity to take part and give something back to our community.”

Starlight CEO Louise Baxter said support of small businesses and their customers like that of Chill on Ice Lounge would go a long way to helping the foundation continue its work.
