ASEB has just begun its official 25th anniversary year, and I am ready to celebrate. With everything we do at ASEB, it’s sometimes hard to remember to take time to stop, look around, and appreciate what we have. First on our list is to thank all of you—the supporters who believe in us, who have stuck with us over the years, and whose generosity allows us to continue. This year we’re opening our doors and inviting you in so that we can connect with you face-to-face, shake your hand, and tell you in person how important you are to us.
We’re planning a series of events that will give us the chance to connect with you throughout the coming year. We’ll have cocktail parties, open houses, meet-and-greets with our board members, and of course our annual Art from the Heart fundraiser in May, which during this anniversary year will be bigger and better than ever. Please sign up for our newsletter, join our Facebook page, and check our website to keep current with what’s coming up.
Our first festivity is right around the corner. On November 8, ASEB will host an Open House at our Hayward Center on 561 A Street, Hayward, CA. You are cordially invited to join us for delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine from local Bay Area vineyards. It promises to be a wonderful event and I sincerely hope to see you there.
And so, at this traditional time of harvest and thanksgiving, I’m looking forward to thanking you in person for the gifts you bring to ASEB. I hope you’ll find the time to join one of our celebrations, to relax, to enjoy each other’s company, and to have fun.
Executive Director, ASEB
