On Saturday, 1 December, 2018, under the high patronage of H.E. Ambassador of France Claire Lignières-Counathe, the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce invited honorable guests to attend luxurious business and charity dinner « Diner de Gala avec Filorga ».

For the 5th consecutive year, aiming to strengthen ties between France and Lithuania, CCFL Gala Dinner was held in the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania.

We would like to thank H.E. Ambassador Claire Lignières-Counathe for the cooperation, Senator of France Mr Olivier Cadic, who arrived to CCFL Gala Dinner to support franco-lithuanian relations, Minister of Transport and Communications Rokas Masiulis, member of Seimas Virgilijus Poderys, mayors, distinguished guests and all dear CCFL members and friends, for getting united and helping to raise money to support Lithuanian historical and cultural initiatives.

CCFL would like to extend our heartfelt greetings and to thank all the partners of the event. Main partners: Filorga, UAB “Pernod Ricard Lietuva” and law firm COBALT.

Thank you for the help in organisation to Giedrius Masalskis and ADK team, and for the elegant decorations to Mantas Petruškevičius. Sincere thank you to our host of the event Eugenijus Skerstonas and special guest Juozas Statkevičius. Thank you very much for the beautiful concert to the Philharmonic orchestra.

At last, but not least, we would like to thank the Grand Dukes Palace for the cooperation. We are honored to continue projects of mecenate that started 5 years ago. Funds were raised for the canopy frieze of the Throne, situated at Baroque Hall of audiences, also known as Throne Hall.

This year, a part of the funds will be devoted for the acquisition of the XVI century book on Mikalojus Kristupas Radvila travels throughout the Europe (and not only). The other part will be dedicated to Vilnius International French Lyceum project of Cinémathèque that will be open for the French-language students of Vilnius schools.

Dear all, thank you very much for your contribution to reaching together of this noble goal. Let’s meet at the CCFL Gala Dinner next year as well!
