In its first year, Starlight’s inaugural Starry Night at Starlight event on Saturday, September 11 raised more than $100,000 for Starlight’s Bob Rohlf Internships program!
The event was supported by 20 All-Stars, a group consisting of some of Kansas City’s most dynamic and charitable movers and shakers. Actor and digital creator Kalen Allen served as this year’s Honorary All-Star, and the event was co-chaired by Denise Dibben and Kristen Whalen.
Starry Night at Starlight featured cocktails, food trucks, live music from Lost Wax and a ticket to that evening’s performance of On Your Feet! This year’s top three All-Stars were recognized live onstage and are listed below. Cheers to all of our All-Stars for helping to make this year’s event such a success by raising more than $100,000 for Starlight’s Bob Rohlf Internships program!
