Kim Cooper is no stranger to the world of nonprofit organizations, having been heavily involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children’s healthcare of Atlanta, Cure Childhood Cancer and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for over 15 years, serving as spokesperson, fundraiser, volunteer and ambassador. Most notably, she is the Founder of Stars and Cigars, and annual community event that has raised over $100,000 for Make-A-Wish Georgia.
These causes, like that of Children Helping Children, hit close to home for Kim, whose oldest daughter is a childhood cancer survivor and Make-A-Wish recipient herself. Kim knows firsthand the Love, Light and support generated from organizations like CHC which fuels her deep passion to make a personal difference in children’s lives. Professionally, Kim has served in roles in marketing, publishing, advertising, sales and media relations both locally and internationally. When she’s not engaged in professional pursuits or spending time with her two daughters, she enjoys dinner out with friends and family, outdoor adventures, and exploring the world through travel.
