Record Attendance at Valentine Ball

The chapter's 2013 AFCEA Valentine Ball broke record attendance and fundraising goals at the Wright-Patterson Consolidated Club and Conference Center in February. Chaired by Danna Plewe and supported throughout the night by Julie Harris, the event offered great food, charity gaming, a phenomenal silent auction coordinated by Stephanie Gottschlich, a photo booth, cigar and scotch room, and the wonderful sounds of Dan Heath and the Paradise Band, which all made for a night that the chapter won't soon forget. Hitting the dance floor for the night were Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, USAF, commander, Air Force Material Command, and Gen. William McCasland, USAF, commander, Air Force Research Lab, as well as leaders from all areas of the community and service. In all, more than 250 came out to support the educational goals of local students. The chapter owes a special thanks to its sponsors who came out in force to support the event and chapter: Wright-State Research Institute, Illumination Works, Segue Technologies, KLSS, The Triune Group, Gartner, JJR Solutions, Peerless Technologies, SAIC, CACI, CDO Technologies, Cubic, Logos at Work, Tek Systems, New York Life, Sawdey Solutions, Vana Solutions and Ventech. Highlights of the night included when Dave Judson took a moment to recognize the passing of Dan Curtis, 2013 chapter president, and presented his family with the collected writings and prayers that Curtis had prepared and shared with the chapter over the years. In addition, Col. Robert Lyman, USAF, chapter board member, named Linda Skinner, current executive vice president, with an overwhelming vote of confidence by the board. Casey Weinstein, chapter vice president of programs, and Aaron Miller, chapter vice president of operations, announced the renaming of the AFCEA Spring Swing Golf Tournament to the Dan Curtis Memorial Tournament to a round of applause. The big winner of the night, however, was David Hart, who walked away with a 60" TV/Blue-Ray/Smart-TV system.
