The French American Chamber of Commerce 2017 Gala is no ordinary benefit gala.
It is an extraordinary combination of exquisitely prepared food coupled with carefully selected wines, high quality entertainment & mingling with interesting, internationally-minded but down-to-earth people from our local French-American business community and beyond.
It's an event to which you can invite friends and business associates, and they will likely say at the end of the evening that they can't wait until next year's Gala!
