To the Editor:

The Darien Community Association (DCA) would like to thank the numerous local businesses, organizations and individuals who were instrumental to the success of our recent Darien Neighbors Global Players Speaker Series.

These include our generous sponsors - Platinum Sponsor John M. Glover Insurance Agency; Gold Sponsor Miller Motorcars; Silver Sponsors Connecticut Community Bank and Dell Technologies; and Bronze Sponsors PG Properties, the Darien Police Association, Hollow Tree Self Storage and Nancy Dauk with Brown Harris Stevens as well as Holly and David Hawes with Compass CT.

Our speakers and moderators enthusiastically gave their time, shared unique insight and donated auction and door prizes: Jad Finck (Allbirds), Nate Checketts (Rhone), Chase Carey (Formula 1), Mark Waller (McLaren Racing), Jay Alter (ESPN) and Michael Mauboussin (Counterpoint Global, Morgan Stanley).

Production partners DAF Media and Jeff DeMaio Audio Visual Services enabled us to provide community connection through innovative livestream broadcasts and hybrid events.

Lastly, thank you to our large and supportive audience, whose participation in this fundraiser provided critical support for the mission of the DCA, as the place in our community to gather, give and learn.
