Unfortunately, the Uncommon Gala on May 7, 2020 has been canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are confident that this is the right decision because the safety and well-being of our guests, speakers, volunteers, and staff is of paramount importance. We are of course disappointed, not just because the gala brings our community closer together, but also because it is our largest fundraising event of the year (bringing in more than one-quarter of our philanthropic revenue). We need your help now more than ever to bridge this gap. If you have the means, please consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation today. Your support enables us to sustain our programs and continue to develop innovative ways of meeting our community's in these dynamic times. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Erica Remi, Director of Development, at erica.remi@aane.org or 617-393-3824, ext. 47.
