Join us on Saturday, Feb. 3 for an Italian travel-inspired evening celebrating the journey and stories of our STAR participants, their families and friends. The 2024 STAR Gala: The Adventure Begins presented by Drs. Rafat and Zoreen Ansari will include an evening full of light, promise, joy and togetherness.

The STAR-studded event will begin with a cocktail hour and our signature Diamond Drop, followed by a fabulous dinner, dance numbers featuring STAR participants, and an extensive silent and live auction led by auctioneer Rick Gallo and event emcee Corey Lazar of WINK News.

The STAR Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year. The gala supports innovative, community-based programs that help hundreds of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities learn skills, find jobs and make social connection.
