Thanking Our Lucky Stars

The SAA Galaxy of Stars provides an opportunity to give from our hearts by honoring a person or persons, a situation, an event, or whatever truly brightens our lives. It is a chance to recognize and dedicate the gifts of emotional support, encouragement, knowledge, and inspiration that we have received from those who have helped to shape our lives.

For a donation, you can honor someone special in our SAA Galaxy of Stars. We’ll send your honoree an email apprising them of your tribute—or you may prefer that your tribute remain anonymous.

We all enjoy the good fortune of having the ability to share the gift of music. This seems a wonderful opportunity to distinguish those whose influence is personally meaningful with our words and gifts. Their stars will twinkle in our virtual sky.
