Save the Date: Blue Stars Family Day and Hall of Fame Induction
Mar 31, 2017 2:02 PM

The Blue Stars are excited to present Family Day on Saturday, June 17 for all of our alumni, friends, and fans. This event will include the Blue Stars 2017 Hall of Fame induction, and replaces the Grand Premier Banquet.

Why the change? "We listened to feedback from people that have attended - and not attended - the Grand Premier in the past, and made the decision to host a less formal, more affordable, and more approachable event for all," said Executive Director Brad Furlano.

Full details of the ticketed event will be announced soon, but Family Day will include a standstill performance by the 2017 Blue Stars, a catered meal, a chance to socialize and interact with the full corps, live and silent auctions, and honoring the 2017 inductees to the Blue Stars Hall of Fame.

The 2017 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 we are 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!
