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 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 is working with children and youth from all of Georgia. As the only residential program dedicated to creating 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. Determined to carry on, we staged a unique concept of pick-up, delivery, and small dinner parties. The Halyards team created an excellent menu for us, and with the support of many of our sponsors and supporters, we were able to have a safe event amid a global pandemic. Thank you to all who supported this concept and helped us pivot for success.

We are delighted to announce that we will be returning to the campus this October for the beautiful event under the stars we all love. Working with our local farmers and fisherman, this year promises to be some of the best sustainable cuisine available. There is nowhere like the Golden Isles for bringing the bounty of the sea and the land together in one epic dinner. Best of all, the proceeds benefit a group of exceptional children.

Whether you have been our partner for the past three years, or you are joining us for the first time, the 4th Annual Dinner Under the Stars promises to be an unforgettable evening. The sponsorship opportunities are detailed in this packet, and there are various options for levels of support. Won’t you join us in creating brighter days for the residents of Morningstar Children’s Home? 

We look forward to seeing you under the stars!

Lisa Johnson, Director of Development
