For the second year in a row, STUDENTS RISING ABOVE featured our exclusive gold clip on stars imprinted with their logo at their annual fundraising gala in San Francisco.
"These are the greatest! Students wear them very proudly and love giving them out to all the donors. Thanks so much for your help in making our 12th Gala fabulous!" exclaims Jennifer Kockos, Director of Development.
SRA is dedicated to helping low-income,first generation college students who have demonstrated a deep commitment to education and strength of character while overcoming tremendous odds of poverty, homelessness, and neglect.
"I put a Starlight in my cocktail (brandy & water/no ice) at bars and parties. It creates quite a sensation and is a good conversation starter. I often tell the story of how I got my first Starlight from a lovely lady on a European River Cruise and always tell people of the Glimmers website. I'm a diehard fan!"
- Stephen Carlton
"My daughters absolutely LOVE their American girl dresses, dolls and those wonderful twinkling star necklaces!!! They had so much fun wearing them. In fact, when their friends saw them, they each wanted one too so they became a perfect Christmas gift. All I did was add a thin purple ribbon for the necklace. The stars already come with eye screws inserted. So easy!"
-Ali Phillips, Aspen
"The audience and students LOVED your light up stars on the rods! They created a very magical sparkle. Every student in the holiday concert held one for both the opening and closing numbers."
-Karen Andruska, Teacher
"Guests were enchanted by your Star Lites. They added so much festivity to my wonderful wedding."
"The Star Lites in organza bags were a big hit for our rehearsal dinner. Guests took them out of the bags and dropped them their glasses of champagne for a special toast to the bride and groom. Such fun!"
I bought some of these waterproof stars and I used them in drinks and on the table for Christmas. My grandchildren love these and thought they were super. They took them off the table and carried them around throughout the holidays. -Maureen W
