It has been the StarArt Foundation’s mission to “be a bridge between art and humanity", Celebrating humanity’s best, The StarArt Foundation wanted to develop an international award honoring the great humanitarians and scientists who are doing so much to further vital research into catastrophic diseases in children.

From this desire was born “Destiny” a sculpture commissioned by the StarArt Foundation, donated by the Lalique Corporation, and created by Madam Lalique as her last official commissioned work of art for the Lalique Corporation. "At the dawn of life, a child lives and moves at ground level. With time, he gradually stands up, makes his first steps and then takes flight towards the destiny of mankind. Madam Lalique created this magnificent piece in clear transparent and satin-finish crystal with young children of the universe sculpted in relief, enlivened by their hopes for the future.

"The Partners in Hope Award has brought together St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Target Corporation in their pursuit of bringing hope to the stricken children of the world." On March 2, 2000 the very first recipient of the Partnership in Hope Award was Mr. Bob Ulrich, Chairman & CEO of Target Corporation, for his commitment to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The StarArt Foundation wants to extend it thanks and appreciation to the Lalique Corporation for their generous support of this miraculous miracle of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, “SO THAT NO CHILD WILL DIE…BEFROE HIS OR HER TIME” The StarArt Foundation wants to extend a very special thanks to all those individuals who embraced our vision; the Getz Family from Mayor’s Jewelers Corp., Mr.Yves E. Coleon, past President of Lalique Inc., Mr. Lloyd Glasgow, past President of Jacques Jugeat, Inc., and all those who made it possible to bring about the creation of “Destiny” The Partnership in Hope Award.
