In what is a tradition that is now almost a decade old, Caltex sites across the country are being prepared for a week of fun and frivolity for a really good cause. Starlight Week will see the Caltex sites going to new heights to raise money and awareness for the Starlight Foundation, a key part of ensuring they can continue to deliver for sick children.

From Monday 20 May to Sunday 26 May, Caltex-branded company owned and operated sites will drive a national fundraising effort, encouraging customers and business partners across its national network to support the Starlight Children’s Foundation Australia.

Caltex is a brand owned by Chevron, one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies with more than 70 years of history in Australia.  Chevron Australia Downstream General Manager Lorne Chambers said Caltex will also donate proceeds of all retail coffee sales while in-store promotions from participating suppliers will attract a 10 cent donation per unit to support Starlight.

“Caltex is a long-term platinum partner and proud supporter of Starlight, raising over $4.42 million to support children in need.  Last year alone, we raised $314 268, which helped brighten the lives of 8,783 kids”, said Lorne.

What started from humble beginnings as a morning tea fundraiser, and has evolved into a week long event that the whole network gets behind.  Stores are decked out in the iconic purple and yellow, staff dress up and office-based employees volunteer their time to drive donations for Starlight.

Additionally, the Caltex team raises funds through team fundraisers, collections throughout their retail network, participating in Starlight signature events and corporate donations from the global Caltex Foundation.
