GT ENTREPENEUR IN CT CELEBRATES 40TH

By Waltie Ainsworth

It was an all night party in honor of Ms Aneka Ainsworth Young who turned 40 for the first time.

A steel pan ensemble, a fire eating and balloon juggler and two DJs provided musical entertainment and a robust backdrop for the masquerade theme celebration.

Aneka who has roots in the People’s Republic of Victoria owns and operates a handful of McDonalds in her home state of Connecticut. She recently diversified her business and now owns and manages a cafe and spirit shop on 50 Elm Street in Connecticut.  She also has other business investments in Peru.

A true Guyanese to the core, when in Guyana Aneka hangs out in the Seafield Bengal district.

Aneka’s mom, Ms Vere Ainsworth Gibbs, and several of her siblings and close friends were on hand at the exquisite Elm Street club to wish her a happy birthday and continued blessings and investment opportunities in the years ahead.  ASOMELYKAM.
