The 16th Annual Gala of the GACC South or German-American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S. was another wonderful success. The evening was complete with everything expected from the event: dining, dancing and networking, plus a silent auction featuring more than 90 items donated by GACC South affiliates.
It was not just about the getting together, nor the food and the dancing, it was also about giving. This year’s fundraiser, with Mercedes Benz as the display sponsor, aimed to help rebuild the areas in Alabama that were devastated by the tornadoes last spring. The 2011 Gala patron was the German Federal State of Bremen. BLG Logistics, the 2011 Gala partner, sponsored the event with them.
The 2011 Gala was held in the stylish St. Regis Atlanta, a AAA Five Diamond boutique hotel, which was a very fitting venue for this prestigious event.
St. Regis has the ambiance of an elegant and laid back country resort even if it is just a short drive from Atlanta’s favorite hotspots like the Georgia Aquarium and Atlanta’s business and entertainment districts. It has 151 guestrooms, 31 of which are top-rated suites. Each room has luxurious furnishings and is adorned with original art pieces. What more, signature butler service is available for each room. You can expect nothing less of the crowning jewel of Buckhead’s luxury hotels!
