Who Is D Co.?

Where Did We Begin

D Co. Planning & Events was established on March 31, 2020 by Aanyae Dearing, an event planner, entertainment consultant, and intermediary. Aanyae began her event planning journey in the spring of 2015 with the help of the Trojan Activities Board, at The Virginia State University. After years of making connections from planning events for her university and surrounding community, Aanyae had a plan for something bigger. Thus founding the Dearing Company, to create a platform and outlet for the many talented peers and colleagues she met while attending Virginia State. D Co. Planning & Events is a one stop shop for event planning, entertainment management and consulting services. Here at D Co., we carry the slogan "Helping you COPE with the pressures of planning", and we will do everything within our power to hold that true. D Co. has a vast network of contacts to assist you with any of your event and entertainment requests. We plan to be able to connect you with the resources we at D Co. know and trust to carry out your needs.
