Starlight Chldren's Foundation to be featured in upcoming episode of ABC's hit romance reality series The Bachelor


Starlight Children’s Foundation™ will participate in a one on one date on an upcoming episode of The Bachelor. The episode will feature a heartfelt twist when two girls from Starlight’s Starbright World program, a private social network for chronically ill teens and their siblings, meet in person for the first time with newest Bachelor, Sean Lowe, and his date. The girls and Sean will enjoy a full day at a closed down amusement park filled with rides, games and fun. The episode is scheduled to air Monday, January 21st 2013, on ABC.

This season on The Bachelor, Sean, 29, the successful Dallas businessman and entrepreneur who charmed fans while wooing Bachelorette Emily Maynard, meets 26 potential soul mates and gets another shot at love as the Bachelor. Sean was blindsided in the Caribbean island of Curaçao when Emily rejected him, and viewers saw the devastated Sean wrestling to make sense of her decision. Thankfully, Sean did not give up on his dream of love and he now knows with certainty that the time is right for him to risk it all again to try to find the right woman. The Bachelor airs Mondays (8:00–10:01 p.m., ET/PT), on ABC
