The Star Community Partners

The Star Sydney are proud Sydneysiders and we love giving back to our local community. We provide financial assistance to local organisations that play a vital role in our community and our team members are proud to offer their time and efforts in support of local charities.

Local Charities

In August 2016, The Star presented six community organisations with financial grants, up to $55,000, to assist them in their community based activities in the Pyrmont/Ultimo and Inner City areas, including:

  • Friends of Pyrmont Community Centre
  • The Harris School Community Scholarship Foundation
  • The Pyrmont History Group
  • Beehive Industries,
  • Will2Live
  • Ten4Them were each presented with funding 

Pyrmont Festival

The Star is a Principal Partner of the Pyrmont Festival, a family event which brings together many of Sydney’s leading food, live music, and local artists.  

Christmas in Pyrmont

The Star is Major Sponsor of this annual local community event supporting local charities including Pyrmont Cares and Barnardos. The event is a quintessential Christmas Market with street performers, musicians, food stalls and entertainment.

A group of enthusiastic team members volunteered their time to help decorate gingerbread houses and cookies to donate to the charity partners. 


The Star Sydney partnered with Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, OzHarvest. Thousands of members of the public were offered a free hot meal in Martin Place as part of the 2016 Think. Eat. Save campaign. The Star hosted two stalls and the public were invited to enjoy a delicious, hearty meal of Milli Julli Sabji ‘everything in the pot’ vegetable curry served with Bhatura flatbread or rescued chicken pie with tomato relish. Meals were prepared by The Star’s award-winning team of chefs and volunteers.
