Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Virtual Dinner for One, Two, or a Few?
The Virtual Dinner is our 2020 fall fundraiser. We hope you'll join us for an evening of live music, streamed right to your computer, alongside takeout from the dinner destination of your choice. We will also have a silent auction at the same time! Support from this event goes to our organization's homelessness prevention and self-sufficiency program.
How do I participate?
You can purchase a ticket at virtualdinner.givesmart.com. Proceeds from ticket sales support our hardworking single parent families in need. To bid on the silent auction, text VIRTUALDINNER to 76278 and register to participate.

The livestream is available to everyone. You do not need to purchase a ticket to enjoy the show.
Do I need a Facebook account to watch the event?

The event is virtual, what do I get if I buy a ticket?
While the livestream is available to everybody, a ticket purchase allows individuals to support our program with a monetary contribution. $75 from every ticket purchase is a tax-deductible donation to North Star of Chester County. For each ticket purchase, buyers may select a $25 gift from a local restaurant or food delivery service from a list of tasty options. For couples, we have an option which includes an option to select two $25 gift cards.
My favorite restaurant is not on the list of gift cards, what can I do?
We focused our restaurant choices on local Chester County favorites including Limoncello, Spence Cafe, and the General Warren. If you would prefer to dine elsewhere, or live outside the area, you may select a gift card from Uber Eats, Door Dash, or Grub Hub!
Can I bid on the auction even if I don't buy a ticket?
Absolutely. You may participate in the silent auction even if you do not purchase a ticket. Simply text VIRTUALDINNER to 76278 and register to bid. You may also view items, register, and place bids at virtualdinner.givesmart.com

Thank you for your support!
The world is taking a little longer to go back to normal than expected. 2020 continues to challenge all of us. Despite everything, we are thankful all of our families have avoided eviction during the pandemic. Of course, 2020 is not over yet and it continues to present new challenges including a back-to-school season like no other, home damage from summer storms, and an apartment building fire that profoundly affected a North Star family. Up against the ending of an eviction moratorium, the depletion of savings accounts, and more- our hardworking families need our support now more than ever.
Throughout this crisis, we have proudly served our families, helping them stay in their homes while they plan for an uncertain future. Your support helps North Star families led by hardworking single parents.
Single fathers like "Jerry" who lost everything when his apartment building was destroyed by a fire. After several weeks, he has recovered and moved into a new apartment with his son. North Star was there for his family, we delivered furniture to their new home, and our case manager guided him through the process of rebuilding. Jerry is determined not to let this event define the road ahead.
Single mothers like "Kayla," a soon-to-be graduate of our program. In her three years participating in our program, she overcame many challenges, achieved several goals, and made a plan for a bright future after North Star. While in our program, Kayla’s son went from early toddler-hood to beginning kindergarten. In her second year with us, Kayla became pregnant with her second child. She managed to remain financially stable during her maternity leave (she purchased an insurance plan that provided Maternity Leave Coverage) and has balanced her budget to support her larger family. She has maintained two jobs and recently completed a savings program towards purchasing a home. She is one step closer to achieving her goal of becoming a home owner.
