AMCHAM proudly hosted the AMCHAM Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball, presented by the Yangon American International School, on October 5 at Rosewood Yangon. This second annual black-tie gala dinner attracted 250 guests in masked finery from among the American, Myanmar and international business communities in Yangon and around the region. This year’s theme provided guests with a glimpse of the tastes and tunes of a traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras.
Festivities kicked-off with the Eagle Hour cocktail reception, followed by a four-course dinner featuring American wines, and a raffle which successfully raised 1,900,000 kyats for the AMCHAM Scholarship Program which currently supports 18 outstanding and promising local Myanmar students from the University of Yangon. Guests danced the night away to live music performed by Where is Charlie? and DJ Bay Tar.
