The French-American Chamber of Commerce of Dallas/Fort Worth will transport guests to la Rive Gauche of the Seine in Saint-Germain-des-Prés with the 19th Annual “La Vie en Roses” Champagne Gala. The gala will include a champagne reception, a French gourmet dinner and wine pairing, dancing, live entertainment and a silent auction to benefit the FACC.
Despite its local setting, guests will delight in surroundings that reflect timeless French landmarks such as the historic Seine River, the charming Le Café de Flore and the enchanting Garden of Luxembourg.
The gala will present the 2014 Alain Bellet Award to Patrick Esquerré, founder of la Madeleine Country French Café and co-founder of Essilor Vision Foundation. The award was named after FACC founder Alain Bellet, who will present the award to Mr. Esquerré.
