The seventh annual Starlight Gala at the Spring Lake Community House took place on Friday,
September 13, 2019.
The beautifully decorated garden, accented by an unusually bright full moon, set the stage for a
truly wonderful evening. Local restaurants provided food, and the Joe Baracata band provided
live music throughout the evening, ensuring a packed dance floor.
The Starlight Gala is one of two major fundraising events sponsored each year to help support
ongoing capital improvements to the nearly 100-year-old building.
A very warm thank you to everyone who helped make the seventh annual Starlight Gala at the
Spring Lake Community House such a special evening. We are eternally grateful to everyone
who came and hope you will come and celebrate with us again next year.
