Thanks again to all of our attendees, sponsors, volunteers, and musicians for another AMAZING year! This was our 11th year, and we celebrated the music of 1983. More than 60 local artists ran through 42 of the top songs from that year. Shine A Light is a fundraiser for the Light Up the Queen Foundation which supports music education programs that serve the underprivileged youth in New Castle County. From the proceeds of our show in March 2022, we were able to grant $30,500 of funding to three local organizations.

The beneficiaries of the 2023 Shine a Light concert will be determined and announced at a later date. Click here for information on the beneficiaries of the 2022 Shine a Light event.
