The 10th Annual Starfish Benefit will be a unique and fun event this year, scheduled for Saturday, September 18th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
It is a hybrid/virtual platform, basically meeting in the middle – halfway back to a gala style event, yet following a cautionary path.
We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with First United Bank to hold the virtual live stream and a sponsor watch party at their new, beautiful location in Sherman, catered by Fulbelli's Restaurant.
Due to pandemic concerns, we have had to scale down the number of attendees, therefore,
we are encouraging community and stay at home watch parties as well.
Please celebrate Silver Linings with us on
September 18th, 2021
A big THANK YOU to our Event Chairs!

The Starfish Story
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?” The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up, and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said… “I made a difference for that one.”
