Stars on Broadway honors 5 non-profits who made a difference on Capitol Hill in 2010

The big red construction wall along Broadway’s light rail station project has been busy with art and installations this year. This holiday season, the wall is featuring a tribute to five worthy non-profits recognized for their work in the community. Here’s more on the project from its sponsors, the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce and Sound Transit:

Capitol Hill Chamber and Sound Transit present “Stars on Broadway” 

The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce and Sound Transit are partnering on “Stars on Broadway,” a program that shines some light on a few of the non-profit organizations that make life brighter for everyone on Capitol Hill throughout the year.

In the program’s first edition, the Capitol Hill Chamber has selected five recipients to honor with a lighted star, each created by artists from the Sound Transit Art Program (STart) Wall Project.  The stars will hang throughout the holiday season on the red construction wall on Broadway just south of John.

  1. Rosehedge is OK, a project that provides housing.

    But, the real powerhouse for about 25 years is the AIDS Foundation, which does it all…. incl. Cal Anderson House, housing.

    The AIDS Foundation does a walk on the Hill, big event and rally at Volunteer Park, and that involves tens of thousands over the years. And Chicken Soup project provides thousands of meals delivered to clients.

    Seems someone was not up on such issues. Or it is who is on the committee, and their friends.

  2. It’s not a competition. It’s a celebration. Both organizations do great work. The purpose of the Stars on Broadway project is to shine some light on great non-profits who are doing great work in our community. We hope to expand the scope and add more stars to the wall every year at this time. The organizations featured in this first year make all of our lives brighter – they are a few of the many shining stars that make Capitol Hill a great place.
