Annual Gala's Focus on Turkey a Wonderful Success!
April 26, 2012
The AIA wishes to thank the members of the 2012 Gala Committee for their wonderful support and diligent efforts to ensure the success of our most important fundraiser of the year. We are particularly grateful to Co-Chairs Nina Joukowsky Koprulu and C. Brian Rose for their leadership. It takes months of hard work to organize an auction brimming with unique items and exclusive travel programs, an exciting evening program, and attendance of hundreds of people who have a true passion for archaeology. All are hallmarks of the AIA Gala and the result of the Committee’s dedication to providing a bright future for the study, appreciation and preservation of our past.
