Annual Viennese Gala Ball 2014

February 11, 2014

American Friends of Austria Continue Their Tradition of Hosting this Prestigious Ball   

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 2014 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 “Anthony Kawalkowski String Orchestra” and strolling violinists inspired close to 200 guests to waltz away the evening of February 7th.

Spotted among the numerous guests with their partners: Honorary Consul of Austria Reinhold Krammer, Rebecca Sanchez (Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity), Gerald Obritzberger (Fronius), Martin Piplits (Amark Consulting), Simone Pohl (German American Chamber of Commerce), Adolfo Laurenti (Mesirow Financial), Paul Anderson (Sonnenberg & Anderson), Tom Soseman (Soseman Law Firm), Jon Ebner (Baker & McKenzie), joined by Trade Commissioner Franz Roessler and the entire team of ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Chicago.

Special thanks to Loretta Fleischmann and Trudy Nika from the American Friends of Austria for bringing this cultural treasure from Vienna to Chicago and in keeping a wonderful tradition going.
