Star Light. Star Bright Luminary Dedication Event

On March 9th the Isabella Santos Foundation will host a special luminary dedication event, Star Light Star Bright. This event is in honor of our founder, Isabella, on what would have been her sixteenth birthday.
As the sun sets on this day, ISF will honor her and other cancer fighters near and far by lighting luminaries on the front lawn of Calvary Church to signify the fight to cure pediatric cancer. Due to current restrictions, this will be a private event but we still need your participation. With your donation, we will light a luminary in memory of Isabella, your loved one, or anyone you choose to honor on the front lawn of this beautiful setting where Isabella is laid to rest. Once we receive your donation confirmation, we will contact you directly to gather the name(s) you wish to have displayed.
We invite you to make a luminary dedication donation in honor of someone you love who has been affected by cancer and help create a brighter future for pediatric cancer.  Learn more here.
Proceeds raised from this event will help fund a clinical trial focusing on relapsed neuroblastoma at Levine Children’s.
