The New York Chapter organizes a variety of cultural and social events for its members throughout the year. Past highlights have included special receptions at the French Consulate; a private visit to Old Westbury gardens; and their Annual Gala Dinner at the Metropolitan Club and the Union Club.
Proceeds from Chapter benefits are designated for specific grants which members have voted to support. The New York Chapter has raised funds for restoration projects at the Petite Malmaison and the Château de La Roche Courbon in France, as well as for the Morris Jumel Mansion and New York City Hall and the French Consulate in New York. Currently the New York Chapter is funding grants to Monticello, Jardins d’Albertas, Château de La Bussière and Deyo House in New Paltz, NY. Future Chapter events are being planned in order to support a grant to the Church of Saint-Germain-des-Pres in Paris.

Please join us for an evening lecture by David Garrard Lowe:
"Sarah Bernhardt: Actress to an Age".
No name more perfectly expresses the glamor of the French theatre than does Sarah Bernhardt. Her life story is as dramatic as the plots of the plays she appeared in. Born in Paris in 1844, she created some of the supreme roles in French drama, including La Tosca, and La Dame aux Camelias.
Bernhardt would be a grand horizontale, a superb sculptor, an impresario, a film star, and a personality whose actions, such as sleeping in her own coffin, would create a persona known from Paris and London to New York and Kansas City. Richly illustrated, the presentation will cover The Divine Sarah's many-faceted career.
