The Swiss Society of New York recognized Nico Hischier and Mirco Mueller, two young, top talented Swiss NHL Hockey players of the NJ Devils on Saturday, February 9, 2019. The Swiss Ball, the Swiss Society’s annual fundraiser, was held under the Patronage of Ambassador Markus Börlin, Consul General of Switzerland in New York, at the magnificent Cipriani 42nd Street. Our wonderful Swiss American Actress Géraldine Dulex was elegantly guiding us through an eventful evening as the master of ceremonies. This year’s special performance included Swiss Baritone super talent Äneas Humm and Pianist Tomomi Sato, “The Juilliard School”. The Swiss and U.S. National Anthems were performed by Äneas. Besides enjoying fine food, bidding on luxury Swiss products featured in the Silent Auction, the 300 attendees danced the night away to the tunes of the wonderful Paul Errico Orchestra DJ Mike until the early morning hours!
