Dinner Under Your Stars

Saturday, October 16, 2021

Dear Partners:

Connecting Kids with brighter days is something the Morningstar team does daily. Our 100 plus team members provide counseling, educational support, nurturing, and care to create a home for those we serve. With up to 57 children in our residential program and hundreds more helped through our two counseling locations, Morningstar Children and Family Services works with children and youth throughout Georgia. As the only residential program dedicated to creating a home for foster children with developmental disabilities, we care for children from the four corners of the state and all the areas in between.

Last year our signature event, Dinner Under the Stars, looked quite different and while we had hoped to return to our beloved event at the MorningStar campus, we must be sensitive to the situation in our community. We must also make decisions reflecting best practices in ensuring the safety and health of the children in our care. For these reasons, we will be doing pick-up and delivery dinners prepared by the talented team at Halyards, continuing a great tradition of supporting our children through partnership with local farmers and businesses. The show will go on, but we will all be seeing the stars from the comfort of our homes on October 16. Our silent auction will continue on our online platform. Exciting auction items will be announced soon!

We continue to pray for our community, those suffering from COVID, our healthcare providers, our MorningStar family, and our supporters. More details will be posted on our website and social media platforms. Tickets are still available for purchase and sponsorships are available as well. The proceeds benefit a group of exceptional children! For questions, please contact Marcie Maddox mmaddox@morningstarcfs.org.

Thank you to all who supported our change in concept last year and to those supporting us this year.

Lisa Johnson, Director of Development
