The best holiday party at home





As The Well’s premiere fundraising event, Starry Night, gets closer, we’d like to introduce ourselves, Brooke Moser and Kate Thacker, as the event’s Host Committee Co-Chairs.

Since The Well Community began its Starry Night events two years ago, we have spent this time of year looking forward to joining our friends for an evening of live music and good company—all for a great cause. Starry Night allows our community to gather in support of The Well Community’s critical programs serving adults in our area who live with severe mental illness.

This year, Starry Night is responding to the ongoing health crisis by putting a new spin on our favorite annual event: We’re going virtual!

You’re invited to Starry Night: Home for the Holidays on Saturday, December 5 from 7-8pm Central Time!  There is no charge, but we do need you to RSVP. A few days before we’ll send you a link to the online event.

Now, this year has been challenging for individuals and organizations alike, and The Well Community is no exception. They have adjusted their programs to the ongoing pandemic even as the need of their community increases. Through offering nutritious meals, essential hygiene items and remote case support, the work continues—even from six feet apart. While serving as Co-Chairs of the Host Committee, we’ve been lucky enough to witness the deep commitment so many have to The Well Community’s work.

Our online party will be the best “at home” party of the season! In addition to a prerecorded production featuring a few familiar faces around the neighborhood (including our families!), this event will allow us to give The Well Community critical support when they need it the most.

So, please RSVP now and we’ll see you online December 5 at 7 p.m. for Starry Night: Home for the Holidays.

P.S. Can’t make it? Why not make a donation now?  Also, we’d love for you to become a sponsor. Click here to get the scoop.

Our special thanks goes to our Co-Chairs, Brooke & Jason Moser and Kate & Don Thacker, to our emcee, Brett Shipp, and to our host committee, sponsors, volunteers and vendors for a fantastic night!
