Successful 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau Sets the Stage for 2016November 24, 2015
Last week, the French-American Business Alliance and the EACC hosted the annual Beaujolais Nouveau Premiere at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. As with previous years, the celebration offered a platform to celebrate the EACC’s dynamic corporate network, the Greater Cincinnati region and the organization itself.
The evening’s proceedings included welcome remarks from Master of Ceremonies Richard La Jeunesse, as well as a moment of silence in remembrance of those impacted by the recent terror attacks in Paris.
Throughout the evening, guests dined on a French inspired menu, while the Beaujolais Silent Auction was featured as the focal point of the room. In total, eighteen silent auction donors provided European-American themed items and experiences for guests to bid on as they networked and mingled. Donors included: Delta Air Lines, Ultimate Air Shuttle, Perfetti Van Melle, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, City of Mason, City of Blue Ash, Wiesnkoenig, Luxottica, Joe Dehner, Newport Aquarium, Harvey Cohen, Madisiono’s Gelato, Gattle’s, CVG, Mr. & Mrs. Eric Rose, Alliance Francaise, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Eurostampa.
Event sponsors included Premiere Sponsor CFM International, along with Cru Sponsors Frost Brown Todd, Safran/Messier-Buggati-Dowty, Safran/Snecma and TechSolve. Vendange Sponsors included CVG, Deceuninck and Huntington Bank.
Thank you to our guests, sponsors, silent auction donors and volunteers for making the 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau a success. We are looking forward to the 2016 Beaujolais Nouveau celebration set for November 17, 2016.
