Brisbane Roar have announced the Starlight Children’s Foundation will be the club’s match day charity partner for their Round 24 clash against Melbourne Victory on Saturday, 25 March at Suncorp Stadium.
Starlight’s mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families is something Brisbane Roar are proud to support.
Managing Director Mark Kingsman believes the Brisbane community, along with Roar members, and fans, will join together in making the match against Victory one to remember.
“Firstly, we want to highlight the wonderful work Starlight Children’s Foundation does in supporting sick and seriously injured children and their families,” Kingsman said.
"We believe having Starlight as our match day partner for the blockbuster clash against one of our biggest rivals was a great way to raise awareness and hopefully raise money.”
Buy your tickets HERE through Ticketek to the Roar's Hyundai A-League match at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday 25th March and $1 from every ticket sold will go to Starlight, to help children like Lauren.
Nine-year-old Lauren (below) has spent her whole life in and out of hospital. She has already had 118 operations and last year alone she spent 28 weeks in hospital.
Thankfully she's found laughter and new friendships in the Starlight Express Room to help cope with those long hospital stays!
