Star Island celebrated Starry Night this past Saturday, November 16 with a great number of friends. Guests from as far away as Maryland made their way to our offices in Portsmouth, NH for an evening of discussion, crafts, and good food.
Guests participating in the First Star portion of the night were entertained by David Whitford. More than just a long-time Shoaler attending the Life on a Star 1 Family Conference, David is also an Editor-at-Large with Fortune Magazine. David talked about his 3-months of reporting in China including an article about one of China’s richest men. First Star saw an engaged audience delve into these fascinating stories.
The Starry Night Craft Gallery featured four vendors selling items as varied as wheat weavings to hand-made glass beads. Another table showcased works by Star Island related authors and publishers. Friends, staff, volunteers, board members and locals all came together to celebrate Star Island during this annual fall fundraiser.
Starry Night is a fundraiser to support Star Island’s mission and projects like the Veteran’s Raffle.
