It was a star-studded evening at the Shining Star Gala at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, as the 2015 Community Youth Council was honored in front of an audience of friends, family and supporters. Nancy Nash Harper was recognized as the 2015 Community Leadership Award recipient. Guests enjoyed live music from the John Arthur Martinez Band and delicious food from Rosemary’s Catering.
Shining Star Gala Co-Chairs were Brenda Jones, Laurie Maccini and Lissa Whitehurst. Thank you to our Master of Ceremonies Ed Clements.
The Community Youth Council is made up of Austin area high school juniors who pledge to give back to the community by volunteering at The Settlement Home. These outstanding teens help in our warehouse during the summer, at special Saturday workdays and at the Charity Garage & Estate Sale.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support these teens and the children at The Settlement Home!
