Starlight Children’s Foundation Australia and The Chef’s Toolbox, one of Australia’s fastest growing cookware companies, have teamed up to throw Australia’s Largest Cooking Party on Wednesday October 24, to help raise $100,000 for Starlight.
For one night only, households across Australia are encouraged to host a dinner party and ask each of their guests to make a $10 minimum contribution to the Starlight Children’s Foundation Australia.
The money raised will help transform the hospital experience for seriously ill children across Australia, supporting programs such as Captain Starlight, Starlight Express Rooms, and teen program Livewire.
Andy Allen, 2012 Masterchef winner, has thrown his weight behind the event, alongside former Masterchef team mates Ben Milbourne and Kylie Millar to host their a series of cooking parties at secret Sydney locations in the lead up to the event on Wednesday October 24.
The trio are aiming to raise over $30,000 for Starlight, preparing four-course meals for close to 500 people over three nights at some of Sydney’s funkiest cafes, and have encouraged all Australians to get behind the cause.
“Cooking is my passion and I’m glad to be putting it towards a very good cause this year as part of Australia’s Largest Cooking Party,” Allen said.
“The sad reality is that every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia, and thousands are faced with a diagnosis that can change their life and the lives of their family forever.
“By hosting your very own cooking party for family and friends on Wednesday October 24, you too can help brighten the lives of seriously ill children across Australia. Get involved!”
