Carroll Community College was transformed into a celestial wonderland on Dec. 5, as more than 400 people filled the great hall for the annual Starry Night Gala. A silent auction and delicious food led into a night of music and dancing with an electrifying performance by the tribute band ABBA Mania! Event proceeds support student scholarships, instructional technology, and classroom equipment. Starry Night raised more than $100,000 this year, bringing the total raised over nine years to more than $600,000. – by Kym Byrnes, photography by Phil Grout
