Annual Gala Dinner


The Annual Gala Dinner is the premier fundraising event to support the work and mission of the French-American Foundation, as well as a key social event bringing together each year prominent leaders and figures in the French-American community. Held each spring in New York, the Annual Gala Dinner recognizes individuals and organizations who have contributed to the French-American relationship. 

In 2015, the French-American Foundation will honor Bruno Bich, Chairman of the BIC Group, and Alain Papiasse, Deputy Chief Operating Officer for BNP Paribas, with the Benjamin Franklin Award and Mimi Sheraton, food critic and journalist, and Jacques Pépin, Chef, Cookbook Author, Cooking Teacher, and PBS-TV Cooking Show Host, with the Lafayette Award.
