Vista Starlight Benefit to Serve Up 50's Nostalgia
Posted on March 1st, 2018

Vista Life Innovations is turning the clock back to the 1950’s for its annual Starlight Benefit spring fundraiser and social event on April 28 at Water’s Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook.
Open to community members, the Vista Starlight Benefit is a spirited evening that includes live and silent auctions, a cocktail hour, dinner and live entertainment. This year’s event will feature a 1950’s diner theme complete with soda jerks, rock and roll music, poodle skirts and, of course, old-fashioned hamburgers and milkshakes. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in their best 1950’s-inspired clothing.
This year's event honoree is Bill McMinn, owner of Essex Printing and Events Magazines in Centerbrook. McMinn and his wife, Sigrid Kun, are active supporters of numerous community organizations in and around the shoreline, including the goPINK Project, which raises funds for patients undergoing breast cancer treatment at Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center; the At-Risk Boys Fund, which supports programs for at-risk male youth across Connecticut; and the Community Foundation of Middlesex County's campaign for a bully-free community.
McMinn and the entire Essex Printing team are also longtime Vista community partners who have sponsored a multitude of events and fundraisers over the years in support of Vista's mission—assisting individuals with disabilities achieve personal success.
Funds raised by the Vista Starlight Benefit help support the many programs and services offered by Vista, including a special fund that underwrites activities and initiatives for Vista students and members.
