Weihnachts Gala

Tuesday, Dec 8, 2015

140 guests enjoyed GABC’s annual Christmas dinner in the magical setting of the Taj Boston ballroom overlooking the Boston Public Garden in historic downtown Boston. The evening included a full sit-down dinner, exclusive raffle items, and the opportunity to mingle with influential executives and decision-makers in the German-American  business community. Our biggest event of the year!

Guests enjoyed a German-inspired meal of an endive salad with smoked trout,  roasted venison in savory gravy with Lingonberries (Hirsch mit Preiselbeeren), roasted winter vegetables, and smoked sturgeon. And of course, the dessert everyone was looking forward to—an incredible display of cakes, tarts, gingerbread and whipped confections from Konditor Meister!
