Mark your calendars for Starlight’s two main fundraising events in 2022!
Starry Night at Starlight
Saturday, June 11, 2022
Following the success of last year’s event, which helped raise more than $100,000 in support of Starlight’s Bob Rohlf Internships program, Starry Night at Starlight returns for a second year.
This community event for all ages highlights the second-ever class of All-Stars - 20 of Kansas City’s most dynamic charitable movers and shakers. Each donation of $100 includes one ticket to Starlight’s Saturday evening performance of Hairspray, as well as a pre-show cocktail hour with delicious food from local restaurants and food trucks, and a post-show dance party.
This year’s event is Co-Chaired by Gretchen FitzGerald and Ashley Hutcheson. The 2022 class of All-Stars will be revealed next month, along with more event details. For more information and to support this year’s event, click here.
The 35th Annual Benefit Gala
Saturday, October 1, 2022
Starlight’s largest fundraising event, the 35th Annual Benefit Gala, is chaired this year by community philanthropists Rick and Cathy Baier.
This black-tie event brings together hundreds of local civic, corporate, and community leaders to celebrate the impact of the arts in our community and raise funds to support Starlight’s greatest operational needs. The evening begins with cocktails in the Shirley Bush Helzberg Garden of the Stars, followed by a seated dinner on Starlight’s Jeannette and Jerome Cohen Community Stage, along with live entertainment and the presentation of the Star Award to a deserving community member. A post-event celebration in the Applause Club caps off the night.
Benefactor levels start at $375. For more information on this year’s event, click here.
