Thank You to the Creators of Shining Stars 2012

While this was the third Shining Stars, it was in a very real sense the first. Shining Stars was completely re-invented for 2012. The new Shining Stars featured a brand-new marketplace for our certified suppliers in the afternoon, and the first-ever Shining Stars Awards in the evening. The day of programming was exponentially more complex to plan and execute than in years past.

The work of producing Shining Stars 2012 took a team of highly committed volunteers and financial contributors. Each of these remarkable men, women and organizations made an indisputable difference in the creation of Shining Stars 2012.
