Nearly 300 friends of the Children’s Medical Center attended the UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center Starlight Celebration on October 23 to celebrate its contributions to the health of the young people in Central New England. All in attendance enjoyed an evening of great fun, great food, an exciting auction and an opportunity to participate in raising funds in support of the Children’s Medical Center’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Approximately $80,000 was raised through sponsorships, ticket sales, raffles, auction and the fund-a-need initiative. Thank you!
We have many people to be grateful for and extend many thanks on behalf of the Children’s Medical Center.
We owe a special thanks to Wagner Motors for partnering with us to host the Starlight Celebration at its Mercedes and BMW showrooms in Shrewsbury. Wagner Motors was selling cars until 5:00 pm and by 6:30 pm, the two showrooms had been transformed into the most extraordinary venue for an elegant evening. We are so grateful for their support throughout the advanced planning and the evening of the event.
We are grateful for the support of our community volunteers who came together to embrace the mission of the UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center.
Thanks to all who attended, donated auction items, sponsored the event and purchased auction items.
Thanks also to Steve Donovan and Jen Carter of WXLO – 104.5 who were marvelous, funny and effective auctioneers; Jose Rivera, Worcester’s own welterweight champion, who graciously signed autographs; and Toni Ballard and her musicians who provided just the right tone with jazz tunes throughout the evening.
