Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest turns 25

May 28, 2011 6:42:36 AM PDT
For 25 years, the Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest has been helping seriously ill children and their families here in Chicago.

The organization helps them cope with their pain, fear and isolation by providing entertainment, education and family activities. On Saturday, June 4, the foundation will host a gala to raise funds. Joan Steltmann, executive director for the foundation, joined us in our ABC7 studio to talk about the event. Special guest at the gala will be actress Minnie Driver, who is also scheduled to appear on ABC7's ABC7 Windy City Live program on Friday, June 3, at 9 a.m.
