Annual Benefit Gala

Annual Benefit Gala

The show must go on!

While Starlight’s 34th Annual Benefit Gala on Saturday, October 10, 2020 was originally scheduled to be in-person, a new online event, An Evening with Starlight: The Sky’s the Limit, is being planned for the safety of our donors and supporters. Additional information on this online benefit can be found on the event page.

In lieu of Gala-specific benefits for this year, all Gala sponsors will instead receive benefits from the Individual Giving or Corporate Charitable Partners programs toward the 2021 Broadway season for the amount of their gift through September 30, 2021.

While we’re thrilled to offer this exciting new virtual event, the need for support of Starlight remains. Despite a season with no shows, Starlight’s community engagement programs have adjusted and carried on as planned, staff members continue to plan for the 2021 season, outdoor events like graduations and dance recitals are happening, and the day-to-day expenses of keeping our venue open haven’t gone away.
