The 17th Annual Starfish Ball, a gala celebrating the nsoro nonprofit’s mission to assist youth transitioning out of foster care, feted the contributions of two local supporters.
Angela Lewis, founding partner of the CPA firm Wilson Lewis, was named Queen of the Ball for being nsoro’s first corporate sponsor, providing pro bono services and support since 2005. René F. Jones of M&T Bank was honored as the ball’s King for his commitment to equitable opportunity and his ongoing support of the organization. The late January event at the St. Regis Atlanta, for which Simply Buckhead was the exclusive media sponsor, included cocktails, dinner, dancing and live and silent auctions. The 550 guests raised almost $1.1 million to support the educational goals of teens leaving the foster system.
