Support the 2016 Annual Campaign
Apr 15, 2016 2:16 PM

The 2016 season is right around the corner, and the members of the Blue Stars are practicing extremely hard to make this a summer to remember! These extraordinary young adults dedicate themselves to achieving the highest standard of excellence, and we're proud to help them reach above and beyond their greatest expectations. By making a positive impact on the lives of these individuals, we believe we're making a positive impact in our community, our country and around the world.

We rely on the financial support of people like you to offset the significant costs of touring and keep tuition as low as possible! Student tuition covers less than half of our annual operating expenses – this is why I am asking you to help make this positive, life-changing educational opportunity available.

To further encourage the spirit of giving, Tim and DeLisa Kviz have offered to match up to $25,000 in donations to the Blue Stars Annual Campaign. Please help us receive every dollar of the matching gift by making your contribution today!
