ASEF Gala: Will Inspire You
March 25 2017 in Cleveland

Dr. Edi Gobec

Gala's special guest will be Edi Gobec, the author of Slovenian American Inventors and Innovators - which is a brilliant result of years of fighting ignorance about Slovenia and Slovenians. Read more about Gobec's life and order his book at the gala.

Tony Petkovšek and Mary Ann Vogel as Gala MCs

Masters of the ceremony will be the Ambassador of Slovenian Culture Tony Petkovšek and the Founding Principal of the Saint Martin de Porres High School Mary Ann Vogel. Petkovšek holds the Cleveland's Polka Ambassador title (for the longest running daily radio show). Vogel is an education expert and Slovenska Pristava's former president. Both are among the most active members of the Slovenian community's cultural life.
