The Lycée Français de New York heads downtown this year for its 20th annual gala at a never before activated space in the financial district, Skylight on Vesey. Lycée Gala 2019, “La vie devant soi: The Journey is Everything," celebrates the courage, hard work and optimism of all those who have a dream and endeavor to bring it to life. Proceeds support the school's scholarship program, as we as its academic and cultural programming.
Gala 2019 honors Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder and CEO of Chobani, with the school's Charles de Ferry de Fontnouvelle Award, named for the Lycée's founder. Mr. Ulukaya is a Turkish immigrant who arrived in the United States in 1994 and has become a celebrated entrepreneur and humanitarian.
