The Florida Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America Host Four Successful Fundraisers Collecting $200,000
May 26, 2015

The Florida Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America, Inc. concluded the last of four successful fundraising events and announced more than $200,000 raised in support of the Hermione Voyage 2015 project, according to Brigitte Van den Hove-Smith, President of the Florida Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America, Inc. (FOHLA-FL) and a FOHLA Executive Committee member.

Commending the efforts of both Brigitte and her friend and fellow Florida FOHLA-FL Vice President Jean Heuschen, Miles Young, President, FOHLA and Worldwide Chairman and CEO of Ogilvy & Mather, said, “On behalf of our Board of Directors, we salute both Brigitte and Jean for their tireless efforts on behalf of the Hermione Voyage 2015 Project. Having been in attendance at each Gala, I also want to thank everyone who attended as well as all the FL-FOHLA volunteers who made each of these events so successful.”

The last of the Florida fundraisers took place at the Naples Sailing and Yacht Club on April 12, where one of the highlights of the auction was a bid of $150,000 for a collection of 81 celebrated Bordeaux classified growth wines donated by the Union des Grands Crus Bordelais in support of the Hermione Voyage 2015; the collection included the five “First Growth” Châteaux of Haut-Brion, Margaux, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite, Latour, as well more than 75 other famous bottles.

The third Gala was held on March 25, 2015, in Palm Beach. There, the Florida Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America, Inc., hosted former U.S. Ambassador to France Craig and Dorothy Stapleton, Miami-based French Consul General Philippe Letrilliart and his wife Valerie, Francoise Jouanneau, founding member of the French Association Hermione La Fayette, former deputy mayor of Rochefort and Vice President of the Fonds de Donation de L’Hotel Mazin-Lafayette in Paris and who donated the Lafayette bust. In addition Thomas Jefferson (re-enactor Steven Edenbo) and Lafayette (re-enactor Benjamin Goldman) were also present, along with a prominent group of 100 American, French and Franco-American members of Palm Beach society including Bill Koch and his wife. Bridget.

The second in Tampa took place on February 18, 2015, at the Tampa Bay Automobile Museum under the patronage of French Consul General Philippe Letrilliart. During a lavish cocktail reception, both the Consul General and Miles Young, President of FOHLA, made remarks about the Hermione Voyage 2015 Project. The event was attended by Tampa business, cultural and civic groups and individuals.

The first Gala took place on January 22, 2015, in Coral Gables. At this event, The Florida Friends of Hermione- Lafayette in America, Inc., in collaboration with the French Consul General and the French-American Chamber of Commerce held a successful reception at French Consul General Philippe Letrilliart’s residence in Coral Gables for 100 guests—the kick off of the Florida Hermione Voyage 2015 series of events. Chef Gui prepared a sumptuous buffet accompanied by Champagne and wines provided by Founding Partner Moët Hennessy. Guests were Americans and French business leaders, diplomats, sailing and heritage enthusiasts as well as media and social media representatives – French Morning, Air France Magazine, Radio Nova International, Agence France Presse (AFP) and The Foodie Gurus.
