Nearly 100 members of the Star community gathered on May 21 to celebrate and support Star Academy’s students and program. Guests enjoyed the sounds of The Stu Tails Band during our reception, followed by a messy, but delicious lobster feast provided by the New England Lobster Company.
Guests were moved by Koen Miller, a Star graduate and participant in our post-high school program, who shared his experience at Star over the past 10 years and how Star has helped him prepare for his life as an adult.
The energy was high, and bidding was lively when the live auction got started and didn’t stop during the Fund-a-Need! The event raised over $72,000 overall, including $40,000 to complete several safety and security projects on campus.
We are grateful to our sponsors Quizlet, Marin Sanitary, Ava Chang Realty, and the Gullota Law Group and thank everyone who participated--whether you attended or helped with the event, donated items to the auction, participated in the Fund-a-Need, or placed bids in our online auction, you have contributed to our success!
