You’re Invited to the 2020 STAR Gala

Join us to celebrate the magic, love and compassion associated with gold at our radiant and glamourous 2020 STAR Gala, which was planned very intentionally for Leap Day, Feb. 29, 2020. STARability shines light on the abilities of our 300 members, who are each unique in their own way—much like the rarity of a Leap Day, and the even more rare occurrence of one on a Saturday night.

The STAR Gala has gained a reputation as one of the most uplifting and fun events of the season, featuring interactive entertainment by professional dancers, an exciting live and silent auction, as well as inspiring stories about how STARability is transforming lives. By being a part of this stellar occasion, you will shine bright with compassion and love and know you are making a difference. Be sure to buy your tickets or become a sponsor before the event is sold out!

Live Auction Sneak Peek!

Exclusive to the STAR Gala is a fabulous LIVE auction lot featuring an amazing catered dinner with vintage wines as part of an overnight experience at Off-the-Hook Hideaway, a sprawling private resort-style property on Keewaydin Island. Your group of up to 14 will enjoy a one-night, two-day stay at this ultra-secluded sprawling stilt home on 5 ½ acres that offers idyllic views of sunrises across the bay and sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. The highlight of the weekend includes an array of fine wines and a chef-created, island-inspired gourmet dinner. Also included is a beautiful 20-minute boat ride to and from Naples Bay, where you’re likely to see dolphins and manatees.
