The stars were out at the annual gala for the Asperger’s Association of New England (AANE), and we were so thrilled to be a part of this glamorous event to help out a good cause. The AANE is a wonderful local organization committed to building meaningful and connected lives for people with Asperger Syndrome and similar autism spectrum profiles. Their annual gala featured a raffle and silent auction to help raise funds for all of the great work that the AANE does, and this year’s theme was a star-studded “Star Light Star Bright” event!

The Cyclorama was transformed for the evening into a beautiful dinner reception, with classic colors of white, silver, and blue in both the linens and floral centerpieces. Dana Markos Events created the fabulous design, which featured a mixture of high and low floral bouquets, star light stencils projected on the walls, and a cluster of twinkling silver stars hung from the ceiling high above the crowd. A mix of blue, purple, and red lighting was projected into the Cyclorama’s stunning dome ceiling, and a series of purple uplights lined the white-draped walls for an elegant splash of color.

Guests arrived at the Cyclorama on a red carpet fit for the stars, and were interviewed by a Joan Rivers look-alike before entering the party. While they enjoyed dinner and dessert, they were entertained by the incomparable Edwards Twins — celebrity impression masters! The twins popped up on stage several times throughout the night, disguised as Neil Diamond, Bette Midler, and Sonny & Cher. This was a truly entertaining event for a great cause, and we were honored to have been a part of it.
