Thank you for celebrating with us!

Bright Night 2017, on April 20th, was our biggest event to-date with 300 guests  in attendance and 29 sponsors. Best of all, the event raised $80,000 to support Rising Suns mission to empower individuals to achieve environmental and economic sustainability for themselves and their communities.
