The evening, which featured cocktails, buffet, dancing and entertainment, was held under the high patronage of His Excellency Francois Delattre, Ambassador of France to the U.S., and Mr. Antonin Baudry, Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy.  FHS Chairman Elizabeth Stribling and FHS President Comte Denis de Kergolay were joined by Gala Chairmen CeCe Black, Margo Langenberg, Liz McDermott, Betsy Santarlasci, Jean Shafiroff and Ann Van Ness; New York Chapter Co-Chairmen Odile de Schiétère-Longchampt and Guy N.
