Dave Koz & Starlight

Uniting the Dave Koz Fan Network through the power of music and culture to raise funds for hospitalized kids

Longtime Starlight All-Star Dave Koz and the Dave Koz Fan Network have raised over $1,000,000 for Starlight Children’s Foundation over the last 25 years. By harnessing the power of song and culture, the Dave Koz Cruise unites friends and fans while seeing the world together through music, all while raising money to deliver happiness to seriously ill kids and their families.
