Annual Benefit Gala


6th Annual Benefit Gala

Put On Your Red Shoes….and Join Us

Join us to “Paint the Town Red” at the AHA Annual Benefit Gala on Sunday, October 22, 201 7 from 5:30-9:00 pm at the Carlyle Club in Alexandria. The wine will flow, the crowd will mingle, and a buffet will tempt every palate as we enjoy the music of the Christophe Ludet Combo throughout the evening. The Silent Auction, with a wide range of offerings, and our wine raffle, with a variety of baskets of fine wines, will be highlights of the event. A new feature this year will be a trivia contest in collaboration with Learning Life – and, yes, there will be prizes!

We invite our attendees and local businesses to become an event sponsor to show your support for the organization and the valuable services AHA provides for the Alexandria community. More information on sponsorship can be found below.
