The American Institute for Stuttering (AIS) hosted its fifth annual Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala on Tuesday night, and Falcons owner & CEO Arthur Blank was honored.
Actress Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, Queen Victoria), also an AIS board member, hosted the event. Both Blank and Blunt have personally dealt with stuttering and have chosen to share their stories with the public.
Communications guru Michael Sheehan, Riki Sheehan and Joe Moglia, chairman of TD Ameritrade and head coach of the Omaha Nighthawks, served as Co-Chairs for the event. The reception was followed by dinner and a much-anticipated "Freeing Voices, Changing Lives" Leadership Award presentation.
