Starlight is incredibly focused on fulfilling our mission - delivering happiness to seriously ill kids and their families - and we could not do this without the support of our generous donors, partners, and hospitals.
In 2021, several individuals, organizations and groups went above and beyond in promoting our work of bringing joy to kids at a time when they need it most. Recognizing them with a Starlight Award is a small gesture in comparison to the lasting impact of their efforts.
