Greetings Volunteers & Supporters!

We have had a wonderful winter and are ready to spring into SPRING!
 
April is national volunteer appreciation month. As we approach another full year of programs we would like to start it off with a thank you for your dedication and energy in helping Starlight achieve its mission to brighten the lives of thousands of local seriously ill children and their families.
 
This month we recognize Starlight New England’s volunteer of the year. This year we elected two very special Starlight volunteers Meagan and Jean for their unique dedication and commitment to local programs. These two remarkable ladies continuously go above and beyond for Starlight children and families. Jean with her clever crafts, dedication to our hospital happenings program and promise to brighten everyone’s day is true gift to our Starlight team. Bringing just as much energy, awareness and thoughtfulness is Meagan’s amazing eagerness to support Starlight in all promotions, activities and magical ability to make every event a success!

Jean and Meagan will be featured on the national Starlight blog starting at 12:00 Noon on Thursday, 4/14. To read more about these amazing volunteers, visit the blog here: www.starlight.org/blog.aspx.  
 
To show our deep appreciation to these two ladiess, Starlight is placing Fun Centers in their honor at two local hospitals. Now, Jean and Meagan's unwaivering commitment to Starlight can brighten the lives of hospitalized children everyday this year and for many more to come!

 
Purses, Pearls & Bowties, too!  A Success
This year’s annual tea was a wonderful success welcoming over 150 guests including 50 Starlight children and their families for a delightful afternoon tea at the Four Seasons Hotel. At the event children enjoyed creating crafts for hospitalized children and yummy cupcakes while adults mingled, bid up the amazing auction and shopped. The event raised nearly $20,000 for local programs and services!Purses_Pearls_002
 
We would like to extend a special thank you to our volunteers Babson Women Giving Back and the Women’s Junior League of Boston! We would also like to thank our amazingly dedicated planning committee for thier time, talent and energy!
