“Alles Walzer“ at the Prestigious Viennese Gala Ball 2010 in Chicago

February 16, 2010

The American Friends of Austria were pleased to welcome many representatives of the Austrian business community and their friends at their festive highlight of the year – the Viennese Gala Ball 2010 at the Drake Hotel.

The ball was once again a pleasure for all the senses - the beautifully decorated Gold Coast Room, a gourmet dinner, the “Tony Kawalkowski String Orchestra” and strolling violinists inspired more than 200 guests to waltz away the evening of February 12th.

Spotted among the numerous guests with their partners: Consul General Thomas Schnoell, Michael Milosits and Elisabeth Freudensprung (Austrian Consulate General in Chicago), Uwe Freuck and Johannes Harms (German Consulate General in Chicago), Simone Pohl (German American Chamber of Commerce), Bill Strauss (Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago), Adolfo Laurenti (Mesirow Financial), Dolores Simon (Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce), Mary Roberts (Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity), Georg Raidl (RHI), Anja Decker (Constantia Flexibles), Charles Hiatt (RZB Finance), Tom Homburger (K&L Gates), Paul Anderson (Sonnenberg & Anderson), Robert Marjai (DHL), Sandra von Valtier, joined by Franz Roessler, Anders Benson and Margit Mills (Austrian Trade Commission Chicago).

Special thanks to Loretta Fleischmann and Trudy Nika from the American Friends of Austria for bringing this cultural treasure from Vienna to Chicago.
