Special Events

Thank you for attending our 2023 Future Stars Gala: A Space To Heal!

The purpose of the 2023 Future Stars Gala is to raise funds to help support Junior Players’ free arts education programs, which serve over 15,000 children and teenagers annually, the majority of whom (85%) are low-to-moderate income. When school is out for the day, many low-income children and teenagers find themselves with an exorbitant amount of time and energy, but few positive options. Into that world comes Junior Players, transforming kids’ lives through the arts.
