Catching Joy would like to sponsor a table for the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s fundraiser, “Purses and Pearls” on Sat., March 6, 2010, 11AM-2PM, at the Four Seasons Hotel, 200 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02116. The Starlight Children’s Foundation has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing entertainment, education and family activities that help them cope with the pain, fear and isolation of prolonged illness. This special Afternoon Tea benefitting Starlight Children’s Foundation is for women and children of all ages. Take up your purses, layer on your peals, and gather your friends for a charming afternoon of shopping, children’s activities and entertainment. Guests will sample an assortment of teas, sandwiches, and desserts, enjoy shopping from a selection of premier artisans, and participate in a silent auction featuring autographed celebrity purses. Keeping with Starlight’s family focus, children are invited to experience philanthropy firsthand. Children will delight in a special menu, partake in cupcake decorating and dancing, and enjoy magic acts for entertainment. Everyone will have a chance to create spring crafts-animal puppets and jewelry beading- to be sent to hospitalized children.
Catching Joy would like to help the Starlight Foundation promote the event by spreading the word. Joy Olaes Surprenant, Catching Joy Founder Executive Director, will be attending the event with her family. Tickets are $55/adult, $25/children, and $35/students. Tickets can be purchased at www.starlight www.starlightnewengland.org or calling 617-241-9911. Mention that you are a part of Catching Joy and they will seat us together. Also, email if you are joining our table.
Stay tuned for another Starlight Children’s Foundation fundraiser, “Starmazing Race”, a scavenger hunt throughout Boston, to be held in June. Catching Joy is excited to be a part of this upcoming event.
