Giving back to community*
By hosting various events ranging from charity support to donating our jewellery to these worthy causes, Starfire continues to work closely with all the following charities. Starfire Diamond Jewellery continues to support these wonderful local businesses and initiatives by being an active member in Bulimba and the wider Brisbane community. We are proud to support wonderful charities such as GIVIT, Mummy’s Wish and the Aussie Kidz Charity as we take pride in making an impact and giving back to our cherished community.
GIVIT is an organisation that lists the needs of trusted support organisations around Australia on their platform. Donors can then offer a donation or give money to help us buy locally. When you give money to a GIVIT appeal, 100% of the money they receive goes to purchasing items that are needed. GIVIT’s purpose is to match generosity with genuine need and their vision is to inspire a culture of giving to people and communities in need.
Women’s Legal Service
Women’s Legal Service is a specialist community legal centre providing free legal and social work help to people who live and identify as women in Queensland. They assist women in the areas of family law, child support, child protection, domestic violence and some areas of sexual assault as well as providing community legal education and participating in law reform. Their mission is to advocate to achieve justice for women.
Dancing CEOs Moulin Rouge Event
Starfire has proudly hosted multiple fundraiser events, including an evening event for the Women’s Legal Service.
A section of Bulimba’s Oxford St turned decidedly Parisian for a Moulin Rouge themes charity event hosted by Elena Gosse and Starfire Diamond Jewellery to raise funds for the fight against domestic violence. It was all hands-on deck for the Women’s Legal Services fundraiser with Stewart Fleming taking MC duties and performances by electronic violinist Suzie G and singers Lisa Lockland-Bell, Luke Harrison and Shay Stafford. A stunning $5800 diamond ring was generously donated as a raffle prize by Starfire owner Shweta Khan who also donated 15% of all sales on the night. Gosse will compete in WLS’s upcoming Dancing CEOs event. - March 2019, Courier Mail
