Dave Koz & Starlight
Uniting the Dave Koz Fan Network through the power of music and culture to raise funds for hospitalized kids
Grammy-nominated saxophonist Dave Koz has been a global ambassador for Starlight Children’s Foundation since 1993. With the generous support of his network of friends and fans, Dave has helped raise over $1.75 million for our mission to deliver happiness to hospitalized kids and their families.
Dave Koz & Friends at Sea: By harnessing the power of song and culture, the annual Dave Koz Cruise unites friends and fans to see the world together through music, all while raising money to deliver happiness to hospitalized kids through an onboard silent auction. Since 2011, the Dave Koz Cruise auction has raised nearly $1 million through the generosity of the Dave Koz Fan Network.
Dave Koz Christmas Tour: To celebrate the season of giving, Dave invites fans along his annual Christmas tour to donate to Starlight to deliver toys, books, games, and other holiday gifts to seriously ill kids. Raising thousands of dollars each year, this initiative ensures that the joy of the holidays is accessible to young patients spending the season in the hospital.
"Dave and the Dave Koz Fan Network exemplify the real power that individuals and grassroots donors can have in making a huge impact in the lives of seriously ill children and their families. We’re so grateful to Dave for his decades of support as a Starlight global ambassador and to his incredibly generous network of devoted fans."
