Spark Salon, a Smashing Success!


Thank you to all who came out to Spark Salon on January 19th. Robyn and Rand Miller, artists and creators of video game super-successes Myst and Riven, joined Spark Central co-founder Jess Walter and 220 guests at Barrister Winery for an evening of inspiration, laughter and giving.

Although we all loved listening to Robyn and Rand share their stories of how their creative paths evolved, everyone's favorite part of the evening was a tie: either when the Girls Rock Lab band Unifoxes rocked our socks off or when three budding game designers presented their story-based video game ideas to our video-game-giant guests.

Not only was it a fun chance to share our mission with a supportive crowd, we raised $46,000, blowing away our goal of 40,000! Huge thanks to everyone who showed up, our superstar volunteers, as well as our generous sponsors. What a great start to the year! Let's keep working together to ignite the creativity, innovation and imagination necessary to help people forge paths to brighter futures!
