The first Starry Night was held in 2005, making this year’s event the 11th Anniversary of Starry Night. Over the years, Starry Night has become the premier social event in Corrales.
This year’s event will be held on August 27, 2016, at 5:30 PM, in a beautiful garden setting. A location map is provided on the back of your ticket. As with past years’ events, we will have wonderful food, wine, beer and our Silent and Live Auctions, but this year the committee has made some changes to make the event an evening to remember!
The 2016 Starry Night Committee includes: Heidi Ames, Ann Gardner, Jim Kruger, Patty Kruger, Lynn Martinez, Linda Parker, Sandy Rasmussen, Kim Stewart, Dee Turner, and Jean Waszak. If you'd like to volunteer for next year's event or contact one of this year's committee members, please visit the contact page.
