BRYAN RAFANELLI: PLANNING WITH A PURPOSE
Event producer Bryan Rafanelli is largely known as the creative genius behind Chelsea Clinton’s wedding and high profile charity galas across the country. But, he’s also a champion for the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. Saks POV chats with the Boston-based master planner about the organization that so dear to his heart.
SaksPOV: How long have you been involved with the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts and what drew you to the cause?
Bryan Rafanelli: “I have been involved with AIDS Action for over 20 years. I became a volunteer in the beginning of the AIDS epidemic after losing a friend to the disease. I joined the special events committee and volunteered for all sorts of great fundraisers. The experience helped me to create my own events company, and today, we offer our services to many worthy organizations.”
