On November 17, 2014, for its fifth edition and its fourth consecutive year, our now-traditional gala dinner benefitting the Harlem Academy drew a wide, warm audience. Tim Speiss led an auction featuring mostly wines and champagnes.
In his opening remarks, Mr. Bertrand Lortholary, Consul General of France, hailed the relationship that unites the African-American community and France, evoking an important but little-known episode of our shared history, the “Harlem Hell Fighters”, who fought alongside France during World War I. He made it a point to renew the Consulate’s support for the Harlem Academy.

Since then, the number of SU4P regulars has quickly increased. SU4P is a creation of Arnaud Collery and Serge Ganem, two passionate French entrepreneurs who live in New York. Together with Eric Vidal, they coach selected speakers, using techniques inspired by movies and theater.
