“The Starlight Canada Gala continues to be one of our largest sources for fundraising
throughout the year. We could not continue the important work we do for families across the
nation without the generous support from all of our sponsors, supporters and attendees.” said Starlight Canada executive director, Brian Bringolf.”

“The money raised from the Gala will go towards funding Starlight’s in and out-of-hospital programming, which includes fun kits (essentials for unexpected hospital stays), hospital grants (funds for hospitals across the country to use on what kids need most), Fun Centres (portable stations equipped with a dvd player, Nintendo Wii, games and movies) and Day Brighteners(tickets to sports games, concerts and more).[news release]
