Celebrity Santa, Kris Smith, arrived at Luna Park via jet boat across Sydney Harbour today for the Luna Park Starlight Children’s Christmas Party to help generate 50,000 well wishes for Starlight kids.
ARIA Award Winning artist, Kasey Chambers performed two songs for guests during the BBQ hosted by Masterchef’s, Matt Preston. They were joined by James Magnussen, Hayden Quinn, some of the cast from Home and Away, the Manley Sea Eagles and 250 seriously ill kids and their families.
Little Starlight child, Ruby Marriott was crowned the ‘Mayor of Luna Park’ for a day by Luke Jacobz, and given a lifetime membership to the park for both her and her family. The event was a massive success and the kids had loads of fun hanging out with some of their favourite celebrity idols.
A ‘Starlight Christmas at Luna Park’ aims to raise awareness of, and encourage donations to the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Luna Park has joined the Starlight mission and is helping them to grant 185 Starlight wishes this Christmas through the “Starlight Christmas at Luna Crew”.
