2021 Cocktail Gala

On Wednesday, December 15, IACC members and friends gathered at downtown Manhattan’s swankiest members-only social club, Spring Place, in celebration of the IACC’s 2021 Holiday Cocktail Gala. Spirits were high as we celebrated the year’s accomplishments and recognized a standout group of IACC members for their important contributions to the IACC community over the past year.

IACC President Alberto Milani presented the newly-minted President’s Award to four long-time IACC members, including Giuseppe Brusa (G.C. Consultants), Venanzio Ciampa (The Promotion Factory), Berardo Paradiso (International Tool Manufacturing) and Claudia Vitelli (Vitelli Foods) as well as to Claudio Del Vecchio (Brooks Brothers Group). The President’s Award recognizes individuals whose active participation and generous support of our association deeply enrich and enhance the IACC community. 

Member company Tarter Krinsky & Drogin also took home top honors as the inaugural recipient of the IACC’s Global Citizen Award, a prize acknowledging individuals or companies who demonstrate an exemplary commitment to global citizenship and corporate social responsibility. Executive Director Federico Tozzi presented the award to Partner Giuliano Iannaccone who accepted on behalf of the firm in recognition of its commitment to contributing to the greater good—to serving the underserved, representing the under-represented and aiding diverse organizations that impact the firm’s local and global communities.  

Guests enjoyed fabulous food and top shelf libations courtesy of event sponsors Bonollo, Campari Group, Freixenet Mionetto, Magnifico, Pomi’, Urbani Truffles, Monini, Sassaia and Bindi. Many thanks to this fabulous group of Italian food and beverage brands, as well as to the rest of the evening’s sponsors: Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Grassi Advisors & Accountants, Jakala, Foa & Son, Tucano, Alberto Milani – A Love Affair With Italy and Fortune Italia.
