Annual Steamship Night Gala: October 17, 2019

 

The Foreign Commerce Club’s year culminates with the annual Gala.  In 2018 we celebrated our 104th annual Gala where we honored Jason Evanchik of Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation (PVH Corp.) and Andy Pujol of Building Homes for Heroes.

At the Gala, our honored guest speak to provide us their insight into the current and future of the transportation industry.  In addition we present scholarships to two SUNY Maritime Academy cadets and hear stories from the Make-a-Wish foundation and the Hole in the Wall Gang participants.  This past year we donated over $12,000 to the charities and hope to increase that each year.

At the end of each dinner we try to give this industry some time to let loose and enjoy themselves with some music and a dance floor.  The Gala is usually held at the prestigious Marriott Marquis in Times Square, NY, NY.
