Rising Stars       

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS, DONORS AND AWARDEES FOR YOUR SUPPORT ON 5/1/19.

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR FOR OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

ON 5/7/20 AT LOMBARDO’S.

Founded in 1970, South Shore Stars provides early-education and youth programs to 1,200 children, ranging from birth to age 18. We operate with a guiding belief that with support, compassion and encouragement, all children can reach their full potential. Fundraising is critical to our success, and to further our mission, our 2019 Gala will again honor Rising Starsleaders in their field and in the South Shore community – who value our mission and our impact on South Shore children.

We are also very honored to be presenting our Shining Star award to

Bob Rivers, Eastern Bank

Since 2010, Stars has honored individuals for making a difference as mentors and leaders in their professions and in their communities (formerly known as the 40 UNDER 40 AWARDS). This year, we anticipate another sellout, with over 200 people coming together to celebrate these inspiring individuals, as well as 49 years of Stars providing quality early-education and youth development programs. A special thank you to NBC10 Boston10 & NECN Meteorologist Michael Page who will be serving as Emcee. 

THANK YOU SPONSORS
