All Star Children’s Foundation’s founders Graci and Dennis McGillicuddy were recognized by the City of Sarasota on April 5, 2021, for their longstanding commitment, philanthropy, and activism to protecting vulnerable children, especially those in the foster care system. Sarasota Mayor Hagen Brody presented the couple with a key to the city, proclaiming that they have “worked tirelessly to prevent child abuse and expand treatment and care for our community’s most vulnerable children. In recent years, the McGillicuddys have focused on the connection between childhood trauma and long-term mental health. Today, we recognize the special impact the McGillicuddys’ leadership, compassion, tenacity and care has made on the lives of countless children in our city and the broader community.”
