23rd annual Star Award honorees for 2015

Every year the San Diego Performing Arts League honors volunteers from 30 local arts organizations for “the indispensable role they play in the arts community.” These are the behind-the-scenes self-starters, the pitch-inners, often the glue that makes productions happen. They rarely attract notice, or even ask for it.
