Zürich English Speaking Group Message Board › Valentine's Day Charity Gala
A friend of mine is planning a charity gala on Valentine's Day to benefit Zurich-based Girl Power Groups. This swanky benefit should be great fun--complete with a band, cocktails, hors d?oeuvres and more. In addition to supporting a good cause, this event is a great way to kick off your Valentine's day evening and mingle with other Americans.
