A GNANGARA business has dressed up one of its machines to raise funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The ‘purple profiler project’ was the brainchild of WestCoast Profilers managing director Chad Komarnyckyj and the initiative has already raised more than $34,000 for the charity.

The company wrapped the 2m profiler machine in purple and invited clients and suppliers to have their logos on it.

It will hit the streets in November, working on road profiling projects around WA.

“Thanks to the generosity of WestCoast Profilers, their clients and suppliers, Starlight will be able to grant five life-changing wishes before Christmas,” Starlight state partnerships manager Jayne Graham said.

“Being able to give the gift of fun, joy and laughter to a seriously ill child during their toughest moments is what Starlight is all about.

“A Starlight Wish will provide a welcome break from the relentless cycle of treatment and hospitalisation and provide amazing memories for the entire family.”
