STAR Center Foundation to Hold STARRY NIGHT 2013 Fundraiser Event, 2/22

STAR (Sensory Therapies And Research) Center, the premier clinic for children with sensory challenges, is holding its first fundraising event in Arizona.

Starry Night 2013 will be held on Friday, February 22 at the Hyatt Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. The fundraiser features Sarge, whose side-splitting comedy, touching vocals and stunning display of dexterity as a pianist have wowed crowds around the world for decades. Sarge has appeared on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, HBO, and Comedy Central. Sarge has also opened for some of the biggest names in music, including Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, The Beach Boys, The Four Tops, Taylor Dayne, and Wayne Newton, just to name a few.

In addition to entertainment by Sarge, there will be silent and live auctions. This special event is being chaired by Lanny and Marlene Lahr. All proceeds benefit the STAR Center Foundation to help children and families with sensory processing disorder (SPD), a neurological disorder that disrupts the daily lives of 5-10% of all children and can cause social isolation, low self-esteem or other social/emotional issues. STAR Center offers a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment for SPD, ADHD, autism and other developmental and behavioral conditions. Donations to the STAR Center Foundation can also be made online through its website.
