Arinex has become an official corporate partner of the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The 12-month partnership with the children’s charity will see Arinex provide pro bono event management services and financial support through company-wide fundraising initiatives.

It comes after Arinex presented a cheque for $6340 to Starlight in May, which was raised following its 2018 Christmas party raffle.

The new corporate partnership with Starlight aligns with Arinex’ existing community and volunteer work; last year staff dedicated 1100 hours managing the Rotary International Peace Conference and the Rotary New South Wales Police Officer of the Year Awards (an event it has managed since its inauguration in 2010).

“It is exciting to formalise our partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation, which is a charity dear to our hearts,” said Nicole Walker, Arinex’s chief operating officer.

“Events have the wonderful potential to leave a positive impact not just on those attending but also the wider community and we look forward to demonstrating that with our planned volunteer work and fundraising. We feel glad knowing our support will go directly towards fulfilling Starlight’s mission – this new partnership gives us even more purpose in our day to day working lives.”

Nicola Tuck, Starlight Corporate Partnerships, said the new partnership with Arinex offers “great potential to support the Starlight Mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill children, young people and their families”.

“Arinex’ expertise in event management combined with its internal program Connecting and Inspiring Architects, which will promote staff engagement with Starlight, promises to be a positive partnership with endless possibilities with our own events and activations,” Tuck said.
