I was a volunteer for Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest annual Gala this year and I felt as if all the workers and volunteers were on the same page and were working for a single common goal. Starlight does great things for ill children and their families, in various different ways. For all the nonprofits that I've had the chance to work for, Starlight has been the most dedicated towards a goal and the faculty and other volunteers were a joy to work with. Starlight Midwest does wonders and will continue to for quite sometime.

We were introduced to Starlight when my son was very young and undergoing treatment for renal insufficiency. We have been able to attend many of the events in the Milwaukee area and a couple in the Chicago area. They treat the whole family with dignity and enthusiasm. What a joy to be welcomed into this group!

Add more Milwaukee area events, as it is an easier destination for us. Events for science and hands-on creativity would help alot!

Starlight Children's Foundation is a wonderful organization giving kids experiences that they might not otherwise get. We were lucky enough to receive tickets for our family of 4 to see Kenny Chesney in Milwaukee, WI last weekend. Wow! What an incredible experience. What topped off the whole night was the fact that it didn't cost us anything. That was really great. We would not have been able to go if it weren't for Starlight. We have thoroughly enjoyed their escapes over the past couple of years. This one topped the list, though.

Each year, I host a fundraiser that raises money for a Great Nonprofit. I my mind, one of the greatest I have encountered was Starlight Midwest. I have been at many of the kids' events and have seen firsthand the impact this organization makes on the children (and families) they serve. One of their precious smiles will change your day... a roomful will change your life.

Starlight Midwest truly sets the bar for making charity work about the people they serve. As a volunteer for Starlight, I have felt that the families truly come first, and that my time is valued and spent wisely. The Great Escapes are so unique since they focus on the entire family, and not just the child themselves. As much as the kids love it, the parents may enjoy it more! Truly a wonderful, world-class, and honest charity. Go Starlight!

Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest is a truly empowering organization. It empowers its staff, volunteers, and interns to be creative, innovative workers. It empowers its families and children to be happy by providing safe-spaces where every kid can just be a kid, without stares or judgement. I am very grateful for the time I've been able to spend with this organization.

Starlight Children's Foundation is a GREAT organization. For over 20 years Starlight Children's Foundation has been dedicated to improving the lives or children with serious medical conditions and their families by providing in and out of hospital activities, entertainment and education. Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest Chapter services the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. I have been a volunteer for Starlight Children's Foundation of Colorado and am now a volunteer for Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest. I truely enjoy both the in-hospital activites including Fun Centers, Hospital Happenings and Starlight Bears and the out of hospital Great Escape program. The kids always look forward to our next event.

Since joining Starlight Children’s Foundation Midwest two years ago as their executive director, I have been continually impressed by the strength and resilience of our Starlight families. They take whatever we can offer them—family outings to ballgames or bowling alleys, the Fun Centers we place in hospitals, the Halloween party we just held at a board member’s office—and make it their own. These kids, their sisters and brothers and parents, literally fight for their lives every day and still find a way to make the most of the joy that comes their way. I come to work each day, determined to find more ways to help. Starlight kids and families, you’re my inspiration!

Having recently joined Starilght, I am more impressed than ever with the Foundation's impact on the lives of the children and families we serve. Lives truly are brightened; pain, fear and isolation are reduced. Thanks to Starlight sick kids get to be just regular kids for a little while and parents get the joy of watching that happen! Check us out and join the fun we create!

My grand niece was born with Cystic Fibrosis over 30 years ago. In part because of CFRI she has been able to marry and have a child. This is a miracle that was not thought possible at the time of her birth. Thank you, CFRI, not only for the gift of life, but even more for providing research that has resulted in real quality of life for my grand niece and so many oters like her!
