Ambassador Jean-David Levitte.

On February 2, the Lycée Français de New York (LFNY) honored Michel David-Weill, former chairman of Lazard Frères and Co, LLC. Lindsay Owen-Jones, chairman of L'Oréal presented David-Weill with the Charles de Ferry de Fontnouvelle Award for distinguished service to the French-American community and to the development of French-American relationships and exchanges across the Atlantic.

The 2007 Gala The Night of the Dragon celebrated the Lycée's introduction of the Mandarin program and raised over $1.4 million, a $300,000 increase from the 2006 Gala. Simon de Pury from Philips and de Pury ignited another exciting scholarship auction and exceeded all expectations with $210,000 dedicated to the Lycée's 2007-2008 scholarship fund.

The Lycée's annual Gala, a coveted event by many “movers and shakers,” brought together leading figures in the international financial community as well as in the art world.
