Staff at Puma in Harvey were decorated from head to toe in purple and yellow on May 1, in an effort to raise money for the Starlight Foundation.

Starlight Day aimed to raise a quarter of a million dollars to “bring fun and happiness” to 5000 Australian children.

Sonia Gervasi and Adarah Auburn dressed up to wash windows and collect donations for sick children in Australia.

Mrs Gervasi said she was proud to help raise money for such a great cause.

“The Starlight Make-a-Wish Foundation grants sick children with a special wish,” Mrs Gervasi said.

“It feels great to be able to help these vulnerable children and their families and all of our customers have been really generous.”

Ms Auburn said she got up at 4am to help out and had a lot of fun on the day.

This year, donations made from April 27 to May 3 were matched by four donors. Spotlight and Harvey’s Auto Parts, along with two anonymous sponsors, matched each dollar donated.

People can still donate on the Starlight website and can even hold their own fundraiser to raise money for the worthy cause.
