Greetings Volunteers & Supporters!

 Dear Starlight Volunteers,

racecarThis month was filled with fun and heart warming events that brightened the lives of Starlight children and their families. On May 19th Guardian Angel Motorsports honored Starlight as the charity of choice for the “Feel the City Shake” parade through Boston. The event was lead by Bruce and Linda Ledoux and Brandon Bogart who organized an amazing parade of Grand Am Race Cars, a lively cocktail reception and extremely memorable occasion for Starlight. Guardian Angel Motorsports efforts raised over $15,000, what a day of warmth and success…here is the video!
 
Starlight was also joined by our dear friends the Vaillancourts for a Fun Center dedication at UMass Memorial Hospital.  Since 1990 Vaillancourt Folk Art Studios of Sutton, Massachusetts has partnered with Starlight in the creation of a limited edition chalkware “Starlight Santa.” Over the years the Vaillancourts have contributed to Starlight’s outpatient programs and hospital programs, placing 15 Fun Centers to date helping hospitalized children find positive distraction.

As for plans for this month we are busy organizing exciting events from the STARmazing Race to fun Great Escapes for Starlight children and families. Read on for more information and let us know what strikes you to get more involved!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Kelly & Jonelle
