The Starlight Children's Foundation aims to provide unique and fun opportunities such as watching Disney on Ice or going to sporting events to children with a variety of disabilities and their families.

Even with the support of private and public investors, informing families and getting the word out to the public about The Starlight Children’s Foundation has been tricky.

“[Hospitals] send out invitations to families, but a lot of marketing has to do with word-of-mouth, flyers and newspaper articles,” Agnello said.

Starlight succeeds in improving the quality of life of seriously ill children and their families, according to Agnello. Connors, Agnello and Reed hope more families become knowledgeable and they all agree awareness of The Starlight Children’s Foundation and getting the word out is an important aspect of helping more sick children and their families.
