A Star Society Gala Fundraiser

  • Date: March 16, 2024
  • Location: River Rock Theatre (8811 River Road, Richmond)
  • Admission: Early bird tickets are on sale now for $210
    • Regular price tickets will increase to $260

DJ Kool Herc, known as a Founding Father of Hip-Hop, and his sister, Cindy Campbell, recognized as the esteemed First Lady of Hip-Hop, will share insights into how their intimate gatherings in the Bronx played a pivotal role in igniting a global cultural revolution. The gala aims to raise funds to support A Star Society‘s dance education programs, scholarships, and community outreach initiatives.

“Arts education is often the first to be cut from school programs and we’ve seen a growing need from families for financial support for dance classes. A Star Society spends 95% of its funds directly supporting dancers and proceeds from this gala will contribute to the development of the next generation of artists and innovators–fostering a culture where imagination fuels progress.”

About the Society

A Star Society for the Performing & Fine Arts provides financial support for disadvantaged and at-risk children and youth to take our valuable dance programs. These programs motivate students, increase self-esteem, build confidence and create community. Besides excellent training in dance, students can become empowered to actualize their potential, be socially responsible and create positive change.

The society was founded by Anita Perel-Panar and Jheric Hizon of Boogaloo Academy, which hosts classes (from musical theatre, ballet, hip hop, street style, and classical) and camps for kids and youth.
