Annual Gala


The Foundation’s Gala is one of the most important dates on its annual calendar. It offers a festive occasion to celebrate the French-American relationship and its own efforts over the year with its community of friends and benefactors.

Importantly, it is also the Foundation’s opportunity to honor those who have dedicated their time and energy to the lasting partnership between France and the United States.


The French-American Foundation was delighted to host its 2019 Gala on June 4th at the Rainbow Room in New York City. This year’s honorees were:

  • Ms. Gina Adams, Corporate Vice President of Government Affairs at FedEx Corporation
  • Ambassador François Delattre, Ambassador of France to the United Nations
  • Mr. John Paulson, President of Paulson & Company

We had the pleasure of hosting the 2018 Gala at the Rainbow Room, as well. Click here to see photos from the event.
