Annual Gala

After a two year hiatus, we are delighted to welcome back friends and supporters to this year’s Gala, our premier fundraising event and a major source of support for the mission and work of the French-American Foundation. This year we are pleased to honor two distinguished leaders who combine a commitment to service with a truly global outlook. Join us for an evening that celebrates the best of Franco-American friendship.
