2019 Star Gala

Date & Time:
March 9th, 2019 [ 5:30PM ]

The Ritz Carlton Golf Resort, Naples

Event Chairs: Lou & Laura Georgelos

You are invited to an evening inspired by the dazzle of diamonds including cocktails, dinner, dancing, a live auction of unique items and experiences, a silent auction with online bidding, and giving opportunities where all proceeds will support the STARability Foundation and its life-transforming programs.

Event Chairs Laura and Lou Georgelos and their dedicated committee have created an exciting event that has been recognized as the must-attend event of the season. The Star Gala also shines light on the over 250 individuals and their families who need STARability’s innovative quality programs that provide social, vocational and educational connections to the community while strengthening awareness and respect for individual abilities.

“We chose the theme Dazzling Diamond Soiree,” says Laura Georgelos, “because like diamonds, our STAR members are unique, and with nurturing, in the right environment and the right setting, their radiance can shine through.” She adds, “STARability offers that environment and the opportunities to bring out our members’ abilities and give them meaning and purpose in their lives.”

Guests at the 2019 STAR Gala will have several giving opportunities to support STARability including a “Fund-a-Need”, STAR Gala “Diamond Drop”, and a live auction featuring a spectacular selection of unique items and experiences. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort located at 2600 Tiburon Drive in Naples. Tickets, Sponsorships, and Underwriting opportunities are SOLD OUT, but there are still ways to support the STAR Gala!

Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.
