We can't wait to see you! It's been so long since we've been able to gather with friends, family, and loyal supporters like you. Please join us for an evening of fine dining and wine pairings at the historic General Warren. This celebration benefits North Star of Chester County's mission, helping hardworking single parents avoid homelessness while guiding them toward financial independence.
In addition to our three-course dinner, attendees can browse our fabulous silent auction and try their luck at our Wine Pull. Thank you for supporting our hardworking families!
Thank you to our Annual Sponsors!

Thank you for your support!
The past year has forced all of us to be more conscious of our health. We understand homelessness is a public health issue and by helping families remain in their homes, out of shelters, we are working to keep them as safe and healthy as possible. Our role in the health and well-being of our families has become more apparent as the pandemic continues because the working poor cannot afford to be sick. We are thankful to report that no families in our program faced eviction during the pandemic.
One of our hardworking moms, “Anita,” was hospitalized with an infection following the birth of her second baby. Single moms like Anita, in low-paying or essential jobs, do not receive the amount of paid sick leave, much less paid maternity leave, to weather emergencies such as this. Our rental assistance helped keep her family in their home, so she can focus on getting better instead of worrying about an eviction. In addition to financial support, North Star recently provided grocery gift cards and cleaning supplies.
Essential workers can’t work from home, making the possibility of a positive COVID case more likely. “Natalie” was in this position this spring. In addition to worrying about how her asthma may affect her recovery, she worried how she would remain current in her rent while missing two weeks of work. Without a safety net, families like Natalie’s could be in serious jeopardy, through no fault of their own. Natalie continues to receive our rental assistance to avoid issues with her rent.
We were thrilled to learn that one of our program participants, “Lauren,” has been accepted into the Habitat for Humanity program and is on her way to being a first-time homebuyer. After successfully completing the Housing Partnership of Chester County Program, improving her credit score, and enrolling in Open Hearth’s Savings Program, Lauren reached her goals. She begins her “sweat equity” this summer with plans to move into her new home this fall.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are there different seating times for dinner?
In order to comply with COVID guidelines, ensure the safety and comfort of attendees, and meet the logistical needs of preparing a luxurious three-course meal for such a large group, we must seat patrons in three time slots.

There are several ways to indicate your preferred time and seating arrangement. When purchasing tickets, please select a ticket from your preferred time slot. You may also enter the names of individuals with whom you prefer to be seated. Make sure your friends and family purchase tickets for the same time and indicate they would like to sit with you too!
If you would like to purchase tickets for an entire table you may do so. If purchasing a table, please indicate other attendees who will be joining you. We will do everything we can to ensure attendees are seated at the table and time they prefer.
