What an honor to have been asked back for the third year as a sponsor for the annual AANE Gala. This years gala celebrated 20 years and 20 Faces of AANE while honoring the Founder and Executive Director Dania Jekel for her 20 years of unwavering service to the global Asperger Community.
AANE, works with individuals, families, and professionals to help people with Asperger Syndrome and similar autism spectrum profiles build meaningful lives. This year’s gala was held at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, located adjacent to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library.
During the cocktail hour, projections filled the walls with facts about AANE and it’s success stories over the last 20 years. Bright orange linens were topped with modern floral designs from Dana Markos Events. Guests moved into the Senate Chamber for the program portion before moving back out to the cocktail area for champagne, cupcakes and a performance by local a cappella performance as the evening wound down.
A special thank you to all of the event sponsors who brought this night together — Dana Markos Events, East Meets West Catering and to Sheri Singer and the team at AANE for having Jill Person Photography capture this fantastic evening for you.
