The evening includes dinner, a no-host bar, entertainment, silent, live and dessert auctions and stories from your friends and neighbors who have overcome barriers to live independent lives regardless of age or ability.

Now's your chance!
The first years are most critical for future success. Yet, too many young children in Juneau don't have access to high-quality early learning opportunities.

This will be a lively evening with refreshments, short films, panel, and table discussions. Call AEYC at 789-1235 for more info.
