It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Christmas? Summer break? Your birthday? Nope. We’re talking about annual gala season, the most glamorous, wonderful time of the year. Now in it’s 17th year, the GACC South’s Annual Gala is the largest black-tie event in the southeast, with nearly 500 guests. Held at the gorgeous St. Regis in Buckhead, slightly north of downtown Atlanta, the Annual Gala attracts high level executives from top German companies in the U.S., as well as dignitaries and political delegations from various German states.

The event is the largest fundraiser for our non-profit organization. Over the course of the night, guests enjoy a silent auction with items donated from our members and friends, a 5-star dinner, dancing to the tunes of a live band, and excellent German wine and beer. You can check out pictures from last year’s Annual Gala here.
