For the 18th year, the Starfish Ball drew supporters of The nsoro Educational Foundation to celebrate the organization’s work with youth aging out of foster care.

Nearly 600 guests gathered at The St. Regis Atlanta in late January to benefit nsoro’s scholarship program that helps those youth earn college degrees while supporting them with coaches and mentors. The evening featured silent and live auctions, corporate sponsorships, Simply Buckhead’s media sponsorship and generous donations that garnered just over $1.3 million. The event also honored Chanel H. Frazier of the Portfolio Management Group and BlackRock Atlanta, and the executive team from TransImpact: Berkley Stafford, John Howard and Keith Byrd. The 2024 Legacy Award went to Shimaine Holley, who, with nsoro’s support, graduated from Albany State and is now working on a master’s in social work.
