for Student Financial Aid
Over 120 years ago, the Reverend William Merrick Chapin came across a homeless boy who was begging at the Providence train station. Without hesitation, he took the boy in and founded St. Andrew’s School. Decades later, the school has helped hundreds of young people in need of a nurturing, stable environment in which to live and study.
Like Father Chapin and St. Andrew’s School, there are many devoted people who make a difference for children. With our event partner, East Bay Newspapers, we present the Shining Star Honor to individuals from our local communities who have, through generosity of spirit, changed the lives and given opportunity to children.
Thank you for your support!
This year we were able to raise over $123,000 toward the St. andrew's school Financial Program.
save the Date for next year’s: Saturday, May 17, 2014
A Night of Shining Stars is supported and attended by corporate and community leaders from around the region. 100% of proceeds generated through corporate and individual donations directly support current year financial aid for many students who couldn't otherwise attend.
Nominees for the Shining Star Honor are presented by editors of East Bay Newspapers and friends of St. Andrew’s School.
