For the second year in a row, Starlight’s Starry Night fundraiser raised $100,00 for Starlight’s Bob Rohlf Internships program. Held Saturday, June 11, Starry Night once again featured a group of All-Stars, a group of Kansas City’s most dynamic and charitable movers and shakers, who led the charge on fundraising. We are so grateful for their support in enriching and expanding charitable donations to Starlight Theatre.
Writer, artist, business strategist, and philosopher of creative, adventurous living, Becky Blades served as this year’s Honorary All-Star, and Gretchen Fitzgerald and Ashley Hutchinson co-chaired the event.
With 350 people in attendance, the ’60s-themed Starry Night at Starlight featured cocktails, food trucks, a live performance from The Crossroad Sound, and tickets to that night’s performance of Hairspray.
Thank you to all of our All-Stars for supporting Starlight in providing hands-on, real-world experience to college students through the Bob Rohlf Internships program. This year’s top three All-Stars in fundraising are:
Monica Curls - $12,158
