Wednesday, 12 September was a magical evening for members of the American Club of the Riviera.
Their annual gala, which was quick to sell-out, was held at the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat.
The evening started with an aperitif in the Volupte Garden and continued in the Club Dauphin for a gourmet seaside dinner. There were 90 guests in attendance and after the dinner, there was plenty of dancing, thanks to the grooves of DJ Mark Dezzani.
The club's president, Beathe-Jeanette Lunde, described it as: "a wonderful evening in the utmost luxury and sophistication."
The American Club of the Riviera is open to all nationalities and according to their website, their main goals 'rest on the foundation of shared values, including friendship, hospitality, and civility in all interactions. Intercultural awareness, respecting, exploring and celebrating cultural differences and similarities. Inclusion and diversity.'
The club's next event will be a trip to the Nobel Villa in San Remo followed by a hearty Italian lunch at Villa Sylvia.
Their next major gathering will be their annual Thanksgiving luncheon in Monaco. Tickets for that go on sale in October.
