Each year, the Arts Council Northeast hosts their Shining Stars luncheon where outstanding area volunteers are honored at a highly anticipated luncheon that also helps raise funds to support area Arts. The recent luncheon in 2017 was their 20th annual event! 

L-R:  Texas State Representative Stephanie Klick, Susan Young - District Director for Texas Senator Kelly Hancock, Ellen McEwen - Membership Director for the Northeast Tarrant Chamber, Amder Ray (sitting), Jack Bradshaw - President & CEO of the Northeast Tarrant Chamber, Keelie Ray (sitting, Amber's Daughter), and Marcia Etie, Lifetime Member of the Northeast Tarrant Chamber.

The Northeast Tarrant Chamber took the occasion as an opportunity to honor Amber Ray, District Director for Texas State Representative Stephanie Klick, with our nomination as 2017 Shining Star.  She has more than 30 years of area service to Northeast Tarrant County and loves volunteering at Chamber events and showing up at Chamber events like ribbon cuttings and making special commemorative presentations!

MORE ABOUT THE SHINING STARS LUNCHEON:  Volunteers from area civic and charitable organizations from all over Northeest Tarrant County are honored by sponsoring organizations.  Nominating organizations purchase tickets and sponsor tables to attend the luncheon in support of their own Shining Star and other honorees. Luncheon guests are the crème de la crème of the area’s most prominent volunteers and community leaders.

The luncheon is preceded by an elegant reception where wonderful art donated by local artists is available to the highest bidder. There is also a small, exclusive silent auction offering unique items from arts patrons and some of the finest retailers in the community.
