Starlings got a big assist from some of the sport’s biggest names in Del Mar, California, on June 3 at the Mike Whitmarsh Beach Volleyball Tournament, which donated proceeds to Starlings.

Among the volleyball luminaries in attendance were three-time Olympic gold medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings, who posted a “keep up the great work, Starlings” shout out on Instagram, and Karch Kiraly, who signed autographs for a long line of fans.

Team Starlings, which competed in the tourney, included three Olympic gold medalists: Ricci Luyties, Steve Salmons and Doug Partie.
