The Star Entertainment Group’s Managing Director, QLD, Geoff Hogg said the team were proud to partner with Cancer Council Queensland’s annual Daffodil Day campaign and support the community.
“As a major supporter of Cancer Council Queensland our team is proud to shine a light on this worthy cause for another year,” he said.
“The daffodil is the international symbol of hope for all those touched by cancer, and through our support of Daffodil Day we hope to spread a message of hope to locals affected by cancer.”
The Star Gold Coast has been supporting the campaign with a number of initiatives, including having a daffodil-scape feature in Garden Kitchen & Bar for Daffodil Day, along with lighting up the foyer and porte cochere yellow and promoting the campaign through featuring marketing collateral around the property.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan thanked The Star Gold Coast for its ongoing dedication to the fight against cancer and encouraged locals to support the cause.
“Daffodil Day is one of Queensland’s most iconic events, bringing hope and joy into the lives of locals affected by cancer,” Ms McMillan said.
“More than 27,000 Queenslanders will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone – we need to do all we can to support those impacted by this disease.
“Daffodil Day raises vital funds to ensure we can continue to conduct world-leading research, right here in Queensland, and continue our proud history of support for people in the local community who have been impacted by this dreaded disease.
“We are grateful to The Star Gold Coast in raising important awareness and encouraging locals to get on board this Daffodil Day.”
Cancer Council Queensland hopes to raise $1 million this Daffodil Day to invest in vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services statewide. To find out more about Daffodil Day, volunteer or buy merchandise, visit daffodilday.com.au or call 1300 65 65.
