Gala Sponsorship

The Council of 1000 Gala Event and the Distinguished German-American of the Year™ Award, are available for sponsorship every year.

The event not only showcases an outstanding individual but also brings together an audience composed of corporate and government leaders. The event provides good exposure through the communications channels of the Foundation as well as opportunities to showcase the company during the event.
