Join us on Friday, October 13, 2017, to honor the work of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, which supplied six million tons of food to help keep the citizens of Belgium and Northern France alive during World War I. After the war, the remaining funds were used to help rebuild Belgium, particularly in the fields of education and academic research. We cordially invite you to a gala dinner dance at the Renaissance Brussels Hotel, where we will celebrate and commemorate the courage and initiative of several individuals on each side of the Atlantic who came together in a partnership to help sustain Belgium and the subsequent legacy in the field of education that came out of this initiative. At 7:00 p.m., we will welcome you in the foyer with an apéritif while you listen to music provided by the SHAPE band. At 7:45 p.m., we will move to the ballroom for the program which will consist of speakers explaining the legacy and the current status, and a three-course dinner, including white and red wines and water. The all-inclusive price for this memorable event is €80 for ACB/AWCB/CCB members and €95 for non-members.
