Our Twentieth Anniversary Gala
On October 17th 2013, AAFSC celebrated two decades of providing social services to immigrant communities across New York City at our 20th Anniversary Gala, “Philanthropists Who Bridge Cultures.”
AAFSC honored Hutham Olayan, President and CEO of Olayan America, as well as Richard Smith, President of the Pinkerton Foundation. The night was seamlessly overseen by our Master of Ceremonies, internationally acclaimed author and media critic, Dr. Jack Shaheen. The gala was a memorable night filled with traditional Arabic cuisine, dabke performances and moving speeches from our Executive Director, board members and partners in service.
Many thanks to everyone who came out to support AAFSC and the work we do, and a special thank you to all of our sponsors for making AAFSC’s 20th Anniversary so special!
We hope to see you all at our 21st Anniversary Gala in Spring 2015!
