We didn't forget about you but were just incredibly busy with our Gibran Gala and Leadership Days, last week. We love our community and thank all those who joined us to commemorate AAI's 30th anniversary at our Gala. Over 700 guests attended the Gala, and we could not have done any of it without you. Thank you so much for being with us last week to celebrate our heritage, our achievements, and to reflect on the progress that has been made, and the work that still needs to be done. We also want to thank all of our wonderful awardees Salma Hayek Pinault, Lawrence Wright, John Sexton and Michael Baroody for their leadership and for embodying the spirit and tradition of the Arab American poet Kahlil Gibran.
