Breath of Spring 2016:

The Annual AAFA New England FUN-raiser on May 6, 2016 was a wonderful evening!
It included a terrific silent auction and a comedy performance by Boston’s Improv Asylum.


This annual celebration for our friends and supporters makes it possible for AAFA New England to offer educational programs and support groups, advocate for your needs and concerns, and be here when you need us.
